1 Growing Together: Ask other Tech staff for advice Julie Gray School of Biological Sciences University of Wollongong

2 Questions arise……

3 Questions arise…… Has someone else figured out how to do this? Has someone else figured out how to do this?

4 Questions arise…… Has someone else figured out how to do this? Has someone else figured out how to do this? Can it be done cheaper? Can it be done cheaper?

6 How do we find out?

7 How do we find out? We ASK!

8 ….and who do we ask?

9 ….and who do we ask? We ask the tech staff

13 Who to talk to? My time and UOW’s money vs The many, varied Campuses in Aus.

25 What was I trying to learn?

26 Access control to labs

27 Access control to labs There is no simple effective solution. There is no simple effective solution. Individual access controls on each door is the best that is being done. Individual access controls on each door is the best that is being done.

34 Summary The exercise was beneficial to me and to UOW at a variety of levels.

35 Summary (cont) My School now has a comprehensive plan to protect the contents of the -80 freezers – (we just have to fund it)

36 Summary (cont) My Faculty is in the position to redesign its liquid nitrogen storage, to a safe and reliable automated system (funding issues again)

37 Summary (cont) The OHS unit is pursuing electronic submission of incident reports – removes time lag and makes process ‘easy’

38 Summary (cont) The University is pursuing improved contractor compliance with local systems

39 Summary (cont) I was both challenged and inspired by the things I discovered.

40 Futures Improved use of general staff within units  Admin vs teaching vs research  Career paths  Staff structures

41 Futures (cont) Components of working OHS management systems.

42 Futures (cont) Management of animal holding facilities and animal research.

43 Ask someone else how they solved it.
