Welcome to Rockefeller University’s Precision Instrumentation Technologies
- Be Smart
Equipment in the PIT is powerful and designed to cut and shape even metal. Please use caution.
- Be Safe
Closed toe shoes will help protect your feet and plastic lenses will help protect your eyes. Wear them when working in the PIT.
- Be Alert
Don’t work when you are too tired, hungry, stressed or hurried to work carefully.
- Be Secure
Long hair, jewelry, and loose clothes can get caught in tools and cause serious harm. Long hair must be tied up prior to use.
- Be Cautious
Make sure that nothing that you do will cause you to be injured. Your safety is our top priority.
- Be Reasonable
There are limits to what we can build here.
- Be Neat
Tools must be returned to their proper place, machines must be cleaned and wiped down, and the floor swept after every use.
- Be Clean
Return unused material to the stock area, or scrap bin. Leave this area clean.
- Be Curious
Ask Jim for assistance on anything you are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with.
- Be Nice
Jim is your trusted friend in science; he is there to help you. Don’t be mean.
