Students and researchers planning to work in the Physics Machine Shop need to learn basic safety principles before beginning. During machine shop work (as a student and as a professional) each person is expected to know:

  • general machine shop and life safety principles,
  • specific machine shop policies and procedures for each piece of machinery or work area
  • the hazards of the materials in use.
