What everyone must know and do prior to the start of work

  • At BNL all work is planned. Most scientific work is governed by an Experimental Safety Review (ESR).
  • You have the obligation to “stop work” if you determine an unsafe condition exists.
  • Read and sign the governing ESR.
  • Complete required training specified in ESR.
  • You must be briefed by knowledgeable individuals on specific work practices in the lab.
  • Receive authorization to work from the PI or ESH coordinator.
  • Ensure you have the required personal protective equipment (PPE, typically safety glasses and goggles, gloves, lab coats) AND that it is in good condition. Discard and replace any defective PPE.
  • Contact your ESH coordinator or PI with any questions or ideas for safety improvements.
