Safety is our priority! We are jointly responsible for maintaining a work environment that is safe to us all. Do your share - when working in the lab, always follow the safety procedures, be aware of potential hazards and be respectful to your own and others' safety. Remember - your decisions regarding work safety are a matter of your own well-being.
