4. Work with your lab PI to keep the chemical inventory current.

5. If you work with lasers:

  • Keep goggles in lab available and well marked. Nice to have system in place where inform people outside what wavelength in use
  • Coordinate lab-specific laser training with the lab manager or PI
  • If illuminated sign not working, inform PI
  • For questions on laser safety, contact the lab manager, PI, or the OSU laser safety officer (link to email here: http://oregonstate.edu/ehs/laser under "Training")
