Some areas of the MUSC campus are potentially hazardous environments.

The participant will receive appropriate training from their sponsor on how to identify the hazards and work with materials and equipment safely, and will be supervised in the handling of instrumentation and materials that may pose a risk. I understand that the participant may be removed from the program on a temporary or permanent basis, if he/she refused or is unable to follow the safety rules, wear assigned personal protective equipment and perform the activity as directed.
