The Department of Materials Science and Engineering is committed to providing a safe working environment for all members of the department. We insist that all faculty, staff, students, and researchers use safe work methods and practices at all times.
The safety and health efforts of this department are an integral part of our daily operations. In order to ensure the well-being of all those in the department, we will accept no less than full cooperation and participation in our safety practices and procedures. The people of this department are our greatest asset and we are very serious about making sure everyone returns home healthy at the end of every workday.
Our Goal is Drive to Zero
Our goal as a department is a "drive to zero" work-related injuries and illnesses. In order to make this possible, we use periodic laboratory audits and Near Miss/Learning Experience Reports to continually improve our safety program. We also strive to maintain an open line of communication between the members of our department and our MatSE Safety Awareness Organization (MSAO) to address any issues that may arise.
