OSHA regulations can be an excellent resource and tool for both the student engineers and faculty advisors, as an addition to a comprehensive safety plan. This will also benefit the students by introducing them to safety standards that they will likely encounter in industry. Safety is not a perfect science, accidents will still happen. But, the more tools and knowledge available, the easier it is to proactively prevent possible safety hazards. OSHA regulations should be incorporated into the safety program as a “best practices” resource for the student engineering projects at a university. For any university with student-led projects, the old adage, “safety first,” should always apply.
