It was a good refresher to know what services are available. Open discussion helps bring up topics that may not be covered in the presentation.

Good morning EH&S team,
The meeting it was great, with a lot information and great points to be aware in the laboratory also at home, issues we are exposed on our daily basis. As a Laboratory manager i was observing the institution push a lot undergraduate students and volunteers to do work inside of the laboratories in general, and I feel they should have a better way to select the students before ask them to do the lab trainings required to be in the lab, the reason i see it lacks of communication, mentoring and common sense from the PI's and students expecting the student will get the duties done as a technician or any other person qualified as a supervisor. The bottom line is the students wants to be involved in many labs activities but no dedication, and poor initiative, with an expectation to finished there journey with a great recommendation letter to add to there resume, and for this students we need be on top for all the issues discussed yesterday on the meeting making sure they learn and put in practice all the safety issues, environmentally respectful, and know exactly means good SOP's. Thank you all for the meeting, we should have more often and make sure students that are involved in each specific area should attended this educational meetings as a mandatory.
