Safety

Educate | Facilitate | Enact

The MILL has a culture of safety. We educate all MILL users about the following information.

 

COVID-19 Response: Summer 2021 Update

Following Georgia Tech and CDC guidelines, the MILL is no longer requiring vaccinated individuals to wear a face covering in our facilities. Non-vaccinated individuals are still required to wear a mask, and are highly encouraged to register for a free vaccine appointment here.

 

Safety Requirements for all Users

All users are required to complete Georgia Tech’s Lab Safety 101 and Right to Know (RTK) training, both of which can be found here. Note that RTK certification expires every year, and Lab Safety expires every 3 years.

MILL users are also required to follow all PPE requirements for MILL facilities. These include:

    • Long cotton pants
    • Closed toe shoes
    • Safety goggles (available at the door)

Users are responsible for following any safety advisements made by MILL Staffers and Officers. Thanks for making the MILL a safe lab environment!

 

Additional Safety Requirements

To operate certain pieces of equipment, additional training and PPE may be required, including nitrile gloves and a lab coat. For our X-ray characterization equipment (XRD & XRF), users must complete Georiga Tech’s X-ray Safety Training before a separate training at the MILL.
