Around the Undergraduate Teaching Lab At the end of a typical bay is a write up area with drop down screen. This is where the TA would do a safety lecture at the start of that days experiment. At the end of the day students gather at these write up areas to work on their calculations and discuss the results from the days experiment. This photo shows one of 12 typical lab bays in the UGTL. Each lab bay has 6-7 fume hoods. The center island is equipped with glass lockers to accommodate up to 14 students. Each bay also has a designated satellite waste accumulation hood. This photo captures a view of the North corridor. Looking closely, there are safety showers and emergency telephones that dot the lab. As a reference point this photo shows a view of MIT’s great dome which can be seen at the SW corner of the lab. This photo shows a view looking down the south lab corridor. At both the east and west end are coat lockers. This is the first thing students see when entering the lab. It’s here where they leave their bags and coats and put on their PPE. The UGTL owns our own Nomex Flame-Resistant Lab-Coats, every coat is bar coded and tracked. On the right you get a glimpse of our large well-organized stockroom, in the back of the stockroom there is a secure locked chemical storage area with seven vented cabinets, the room even has its own shower and eye wash station. Left: One of five entrances to the lab, all are card reader protected allowing us an extra layer of security. There are visitor safety glass stations on the walls just inside the doors. Used glasses are collected daily and sanitized. Within every bay is a labeled cabinet containing emergency chemical spill materials including spill pads, spill pillows and acid/base neutralizing materials.
