Laboratory Safety is the responsibility of all who use, maintain, or visit the labs within the Mechanical Engineering department. Laboratory researchers are responsible for working with the principal investigator to become familiar with the appropriate hazard information and safety policies before performing any work.
Researchers in select laboratories will be issued lab coats and goggles, depending on the type of materials used in the labs.
Only faculty members and PIs can initiate these requests.
Please do not hire any visitor before ensuring pre-notification to Mike. If a visitor arrives on campus without an approved appointment, there are consequences:
Occasionally, you may feel overwhelmed by the rigors of research and education, especially if coupled with outside stresses like health and family concerns. Johns Hopkins offers a host of resources where you can ask for and receive help.
If you need someone to listen, you can talk to your research supervisor or any Mechanical Engineering staff member who is available to listen. Sometimes, venting to someone may be all you need.
Sometimes, though, you may want to talk to someone who is trained to help people in distress. View these pages for information and hours:
