All users must read and understand the following documents:
UMCP users must complete the online Chemical Hygiene Training Program for Chemical Workers and successfully pass a quiz at the end.
External users must have completed similar training and be approved on a case-by-case basis by FabLab staff.
Training is by appointment only. All new users must schedule a FabLab familiarization and safety training session with
Tom Loughran (5-3642, email@example.com), Jon Hummel
(5-5017, firstname.lastname@example.org) or John Abraham (5-6664, email@example.com).
The initial training session (no charge) runs for approximately one hour and is limited to 5 users per session. In addition to the orientation, you must have taken and passed the University of Maryland Department of Environmental Safety on-line Chemical Hygiene Training Program for Laboratory Workers in the previous step.
During that time, you will learn how to properly gown up for the clean room, get a brief overview of the equipment and chemicals in FabLab and brief us on what you would like to do in FabLab.
Based on this, you can arrange for the appropriate training needed on each piece of equipment that you will be using.
