This section covers the administrative and general culture of accessing and navigating the labs.
Effective and conscientious communication is essential for the health and productivity of our research community.
Please keep your communications respectful and relevant to the community you are addressing. Questions about specific process recipes might be best directed to the mail list for that equipment. Announcements for technical and professional seminars and workshops are entirely appropriate for the SNF Labmembers email list. "Free ice cream on the patio!" would welcome on the Labmembers email list, but one can imagine some topics that would probably not. Make use of these mail lists with some consideration for the audience.
We highly recommend that you:
Not all labmembers require access to all the SNF lab spaces. However, all labmembers must become familiar with the hazards in the building they will be working in regardless of whether there is any contact with any chemical or physical hazards. And some labs require additional training for hazards specific to those labs. The training requirement for each of the labs is summarized below. By default, the full building and cleanroom tours are scheduled for all new labmembers; make sure to inform email@example.com if you require the building tour only.
|Lab Space||Required Safety orientation||Additional Requirements for Access|
|Cleanroom||Bldg & Cleanroom tour|
|ExFab||Bldg & Cleanroom tour|
|Mavericks/Room 155||Bldg tour||Experiment review with staff|
|Ocean/Room 151||Bldg tour|
|The MOCVD Lab||Bldg & Cleanroom tour||Only MOCVD users may access|
Before entering any lab spaces, make sure to wear appropriate street clothing, which includes long pants (or equivalent) that cover legs, and closed-toe shoes that completely cover the feet. This table lists the dress code for entering these lab spaces. Note that additional PPE is required for certain specific operations, especially with chemical handling.
