Working Alone and High Hazard Work

In general, it is best to avoid working alone at a bench in a laboratory building. It is the laboratory supervisor's responsibility to be sure all laboratory workers are trained in the specific guidelines to minimize the chance of injury, loss of research materials or property damage from working alone.

Please fill out the General Guidelines for Working Alone and High Hazard Work form and place it in your Laboratory Safety Notebook for reference by laboratory workers as they plan their work schedules.
