User Safety Requirements

Our goal is to ensure safety for all users and minimize the risks associated with the facility. Therefore, we require all new users to take two types of training:

These training sessions will inform new users of INRF safety policies and provide general cleanroom instruction to maintain a non-hazardous environment.
