ESP Queue and Resources

As part of your research in College of Engineering Labs, you are required to fill out an Experimental Safety Plan (ESP). These forms tend to look a bit daunting but they serve a very important purpose. They allow the COE Safety Specialist to review the basis of your experimental work and determine if there are hazards that need to be addressed. You may meed additional training or personal protective equipment (PPE) for your work. Or you may be trying to perform a task that is dangerous such as unstable/explosive, highly flammable, electrocution or electrical shock, fall or falling objects etc. And please do not assume that there are NO risks associated with your experiment and everything is safe. Almost everything has some sort of risk to your health and safety. Simple accidents like slips/trips/falls at ground level have caused serious injuries and getting chips/sparks/splashes in your eyes can cause lifelong vision problems.

So, let’s review your safety using an Experimental Safety Plan. If you don’t know exactly where your research will lead, then put in what you know at present. Then you need to revise it as your work  proceeds. Especially when you add chemicals, change materials or equipment to improve your approach. Below are links to the most current ESP templates and examples that you can download to follow. If you have questions about any of this, please call or email Juanita Miller, COE Safety, miljgh@nmsu.edu or 575-646-1292. I will be happy to meet with you and help you fill out this form !

If you have submitted an ESP and want to know the status of the approval, you can check the table below.
