UCSD Lab Safety Training

Produced by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MatSE) at The Pennsylvania State University, the MatSE Safety Dance Video was created to promote laboratory safety in an educational and memorable manner. This video is only a small part of the safety culture that's been created in MatSE since 2008. The Materials Safety Awareness Organization (MSAO) oversees the culture of safety in MatSE, promoting safety in all aspects of materials research at Penn State. We hope you find the MatSE Safety Dance Video fun and useful!
