The MatSE Safety Dance
  • The MatSE Safety Dance
    A fun spin on lab safety
  • In 2007 Materials Science and Engineering began the effort of creating a new culture of safety within the department. A group of faculty, staff, and students were brought together to create the Materials Safety Awareness Organization (MSAO). One goal of the MSAO was to create a video about laboratory safety. Generally these types of instructional videos can be pretty dry, so we wanted to make our video educational and fun. Since it was posted to YouTube in September, 2011, the video has been a hit with researchers in the department, across the University, and in industry.
