In addition to familiarizing yourself with your lab, location & operation of the safety features (exits, fire extinguishers, safety showers, eye wash facility, and first aid & spill kits) make sure you know how to respond properly to a facilities related issue (plumbing, electrical, etc.).
First, you should immediately notify your PI or supervisor if any problem occurs.
Second, contact the appropriate Facilities Services and/or EH&S office.
