Subject

Visitors and Children in University Laboratory and Shops SAFETY 88-4 (Rev. 5/95)

Purpose

To regulate visits by non-Facilities Services staff to shops.

Practice

While the University allows and encourages community representatives, members of the public, and students to visit University facilities, visits to FS shops, because of liability and safety issues, must be under the direct supervision of an authorized FS staff member, or part of a formally organized “Open House,” guided tour, or supervised educational program which has been scheduled with the management of an FS department.

More specifically, children are not authorized to visit FS shops, except as a participant in a formally sponsored tour or educational program, or as the guest and under the supervision of a parent who is an FS staff member. As a matter of general University policy, children of University students, faculty, and staff members are not authorized to be in shops on either an attended or unattended child care basis. “Children” refers to minors under eighteen years old who are not students or employees of the University.
