Safety

Safety is a top priority in the lab. Below are the steps that must be taken by all lab users. Please read this page COMPLETELY. There is 1 in lab training and 3 UMD trainings.

(1) First an in lab training will be conducted. Once this has been completed, you must fill out this online form to certify that you have completed this training with Prof. Munday. The form can be found here. A paper version is available to print and take to the lab if needed.
