WHK SIP Lab Safety Guidance

Every year the NCI-F welcomes new students into the Werner Kirsten Student Intern Program, affording students who are often under the age of 18 the opportunity to perform research and work with NCI-F scientific staff to gain experience in a biomedical research environment.

The Environment Health and Safety Department is providing guidance documentation to inform individuals sponsoring or mentoring students under the age of 18 about the policies that govern minor students in the workplace.

It is the goal of EHS to ensure that each student working here at the NCI-F is afforded a safe and healthful work environment. EHS looks forward to working with mentors and sponsors to achieve this important goal.
