Internships and Lab Visits

Both RIT and the K-12 community benefit when students visit RIT and/or participate in internships on campus.  In order to maximize the rewards and minimize the risk from these activities, please consider the following when coordinating such a visit:


  1. Be sure to follow all of the requirements for the Protection of Minors on Campus.
  2. Contact Environmental Health & Safety  (585) 475-2040 for help with a safety and training assessment if students are working in shops/labs/studios or in other potentially hazardous areas.
  3. Try to create a plan which minimizes the chance that a minor will be working alone or behind a closed door with an adult.  
  4. Familiarize the student with RIT emergency action plans.
