This issue has been discussed a few times in our Laboratory Chemical Hygiene Safety Meetings here on campus and our Committee easily reached a consensus regarding Admissions Tours coming through our laboratories and/or research spaces.
Our laboratories are accessed via a card swipe and students can only access the lab during their designated lab time (or a close window to that). Some labs choose no student access and the instructors let them in at the start themselves. Our rule is that all student employees and faculty go through our annual safety training, and these student ambassadors from Admissions currently do not go through a safety training.
While meeting with my supervisor this morning, she and I thought it would be helpful to know how other campuses handle tours. When I went on college tours with my daughter, we peeked in the window of the labs and the tour guide explained various things about them. However, we did not usually enter the labs. Does your institution allow tours into the labs themselves?
Thank you for any insight you can offer, it is much appreciated!
