The HYPER lab deals with the most flammable, highest energy, and most extreme gases in the universe. We have a Strangelove of safety (see the link below). Please read this primer that outlines our safety philosophy: Let’s Talk About Safety
In short, we have four layers that we work through:
1. General lab safety supporting WSU wide policies and procedures and encouraged through our weekly lab community meetings.
2. Topic specific training: Cryogenics, Flammable Gases, Vacuum Chambers, High Pressure Gases, Electrical.
3. Equipment specific training: C3PO, CHEF, TITAN, Indium Extruder, Manual Mill, Cold-saw, Orbital-TIG welder.
4. Project specific safety and FMEA worksheet: HYPER lab Project Safety Checklist
Plenty more material is available on the safety posts on the lab website in the next tab.
