Physics laboratories are often considered to be less dangerous than some others such as chemistry laboratories. It is true that the hazards are less obvious but none the less real and ever present. As in most laboratories many risks can be minimised by taking care and giving thought to the possible dangers inherent in any specific situation. It is important always to remember that although one individual who has set up a particular experimental situation may be aware of the dangers associated with it, for example, exposed HT terminals or a laser beam, this individual may be called away at any time leaving what amounts to a booby trap for the next worker who comes into that laboratory. The only safe way to work in a laboratory is to bear in mind, at all times, the possibility of having to leave the room and another worker, or in some cases, member of the public, coming into that room — is that person at risk? If the answer is yes then your experimental arrangement must be modified to make it safe.
