Safety and Training

A safety buddy is required for Wet Processing/Bay 3:

  • Monday through Friday: 12 am to 8 am and 5 pm to midnight
  • Weekends
  • When the University is closed (holidays, winter break, snow days, etc)
  • When notified by staff
  • Only a person who is authorized to use the cleanroom (PennCard unlocks the Facility door) may be a buddy.
  • Another user present in the cleanroom is NOT automatically your safety buddy; they must agree to be your safety buddy.
  • The buddy must be in the cleanroom at all times and you should check on each other frequently.
