How Do I Deal With Conflict?

When safety or equipment use issues occur, please follow the following guidelines:

  1. Each faculty investigator is primarily responsible for safety compliance on a project.

  2. Lab Managers (Bill Lang or John Dreger) will resolve day to day safety-related and equipment use problems.

  3. When neither lab manager is on site, but a faculty member identifies a safety or equipment use issue, any graduate student involved with the issue will respond in a professional manner to the direction provided by the faculty member.

  4. When there is no lab manager or faculty member present, but a graduate student identifies a safety or equipment use issue, any undergraduate student involved with the issue will respond in a professional manner to the direction provided by the graduate student.

  5. When conflicts or safety issues, are not quickly and amicably resolved, the associated activity must cease and the issue should be brought to the Lab Director (wsmtl@engr.wisc.edu) as soon as possible for resolution.

  6. Another option is to go to UW-Madison Conflict Resolution Link.
