Misc. Information

  • Accidents happen, but the more informed you are the better you will be able to handle any situation.
  • If you see another user using unsafe practices in the lab, ask them to follow proper procedures. If you are not comfortable talking to the user or if they do not correct their behavior, please notify IEN staff. 
  • You should review your plan before starting in the lab and plan for possible outcomes. Preparation is one of your best tools.
