3 Institute of Environmental Physics and Remote Sensing IUP/IFE-UB, Department 1 Physics/Electrical Engineering Dipl. Ing. C. Kothe Dipl.-Ing. Wilke Thomssen AG Burrows 1. Safety at work The University of Bremen is responsible for the health and safety of its employees. Therefore the employees have to be trained by an yearly safety instruction. The participation has to be proved by signing a list at the end of this presentation.

4 Institute of Environmental Physics and Remote Sensing IUP/IFE-UB, Department 1 Physics/Electrical Engineering Dipl. Ing. C. Kothe Dipl.-Ing. Wilke Thomssen AG Burrows Laws, rules and regulations: the law of safety at work ( Arbeitsschutzgesetz) rules for accident preventions (Unfall VV) chemicals act (Chemikaliengesetz) regulation of dangerous goods (GefStoffV) technical rules for dangerous goods (TRGS) for further information see:

5 Institute of Environmental Physics and Remote Sensing IUP/IFE-UB, Department 1 Physics/Electrical Engineering Dipl. Ing. C. Kothe Dipl.-Ing. Wilke Thomssen AG Burrows Safety in the lab If you are working in a lab at the University of Bremen you have to follow the General Laboratory Policies (Laborrahmenordnung).

6 Institute of Environmental Physics and Remote Sensing IUP/IFE-UB, Department 1 Physics/Electrical Engineering Dipl. Ing. C. Kothe Dipl.-Ing. Wilke Thomssen AG Burrows Important points of the General Laboratory Policies: Eating, drinking and smoking is forbidden in the lab. Keep the labs clean and orderly. Be familiar with the safety equipment and its usage. Protective clothing has to be worn (if required). Turn off defective devices immediately. During general blackout, only use exhaust hoods connected to the emergency power grid. If no longer needed, turn of all gas, water and air lines. Use the emergency switch in case of a accident due to fire or electricity.

7 Institute of Environmental Physics and Remote Sensing IUP/IFE-UB, Department 1 Physics/Electrical Engineering Dipl. Ing. C. Kothe Dipl.-Ing. Wilke Thomssen AG Burrows Working in the lab: Ensure that the ventilation in the lab is switched on and the windows are closed. Escape routes to exits, windows, eye wash etc. have to be wide enough (min. 0.8 m) to handle emergency situations. When leaving the lab, close the windows and lock the door for safety reasons and to prevent theft. When you are working alone at late evening or at the weekend: Inform your team leader before working alone. Agree with your team leader, how to ensure that you are fine, e.g. a call by a colleague at a specified time.
