Safety

The Biomedical Engineering laboratory safety program ensures that faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students may work in a controlled and safe laboratory environment. In addition to following the University wide safety protocols, our department also gives laboratory specific training due to the multi-disciplinary nature of Biomedical Engineering.

The Safety Policy of Michigan Technological University is based on the firm conviction that accidents that cause personal injury or damage to property or the environment can be prevented. No phase of University business or operation is of greater importance than the safety. Michigan Technological University will provide and maintain a safe and healthy environment at all locations and will establish operating practices designed to assure the safety of all.
