Any engineering graduate student who works or plans to work in an engineering laboratory must attend an Office of Risk Management Safety Training Seminar. The Engineering Safety Officer informs all graduate students of the dates and times that these (three hour) seminars are held. Failure to attend one of these seminars can negate a TA or a RA appointment.
Depending upon the nature of the particular research that a student becomes involved with, the student might need to attend other safety training (e.g., hazardous waste, laser safety, biosafety, radiation safety, etc.).
