Robertson Aviation Safety Center II

Opened in 2009, Embry-Riddle Prescott's Robertson Aviation Safety Center II is home to the Industrial Hygiene Laboratory, the Ergonomics Laboratory, and the Aviation Safety and Security Archives.

Labs

  • Ergonomics Laboratory (Room 107A): The various types of tests and equipment found in the Ergonomics Laboratory is devoted to helping students understand and evaluate human body movement in the workplace.
  • Industrial Hygiene Laboratory (107B): In the Industrial Hygiene (IH) Lab, students learn to use IH equipment to monitor and evaluate human health exposures. The lab supports research on occupational health exposures to particulates, mold, volatile organic compounds, noise, vibration and mental fatigue. It also supports assessment of ventilation, respirator fit testing, basic human physiology and illumination.
  • Observatory Complex (Surrounding area): Used for Astronomy classes and a wide variety of short-term and long-term undergraduate student/faculty projects in Optical and Radio Astronomy.  Typically 6-10 student projects in progress at any given time.  Also used for public outreach in Astronomy, either on-site or via video streaming to the Planetarium.
  • Aviation Safety & Security Archives: The Aviation Safety and Security Archives is a repository making historic information on aviation safety and security available to all members of the faculty, students, and the aviation community at large. As a leading informational source, the Aviation Safety and Security Archives promotes and supports research by identifying, acquiring, preserving, and making available primary and unique records, manuscripts, and published materials relating to aviation, aerospace safety, and security.
