It is almost that time again…for our Summer Students. So here is a little reminder -
Mentors should ensure that prior to the start of work all students have their required training completed and that they are properly trained on the task to be performed before working independently. The BNL ESH courses that they are required to complete are listed on the New Employee Orientation Form which each student receives prior to their arrival.
Any students doing laboratory research must complete all the courses and review the appropriate Experimental Safety Reviews (ESRs) and Radiation Work Permits (RWPs) and sign prior to work.
We often find that students are enthusiastic and eager to get to work. They are often intimidated and do not feel comfortable asking questions. This increases the potential for a safety issue. Please make sure to properly train the students and ensure they are qualified to do the work prior to letting them work independently and that you or a designee are readily available to answer any questions.
Students should not work with hazardous materials off hours unsupervised. Make students aware that they can call Security on extension 2238 for an escort back to their dorm room if they are concerned for their safety when leaving work in the dark.
