Lab Safety

  • Never work in a fluid power lab alone.
  • Know where the emergency shut-offs are located and how to operate them.
  • Correct or report any hazardous conditions (electrical, trip hazards, etc.)
  • Maintain clear egress pathways at least 24 inches wide at all times.
  • Clean up spilled oil immediately and dispose of the clean-up materials appropriately (see Chemical Safety).
  • Put away your tools and materials at the end of your work session. Keep the lab tidy.
