5 Coincident or Not ? If, A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Equals, Then, K + N + O + W + L + E +D + G+ E = 96% H + A + R + D + W + O + R + K =98% HSE Role Why lab safety?

6 Coincident or Not ? Both are important,but the total falls just short of 100% But, A +T + T + I + T + U + D + E =100% HSE really is about attitude. Make 100% safe behavior your choice: Both ON and OFF the job. HSE Role Why lab safety? Hazards Minimum Requirements Mandatory Safety Rules Supervisor Responsibilities Hazards control Risk assessment

7 HSE and Incident Prevention Depends how much on ATTITUDE? A = 1 T = 20 I = 9 T =20 U =21 D =4 E =5 HSE Role Why lab safety? Hazards Minimum Requirements Mandatory Safety Rules Supervisor Responsibilities Hazards control Risk assessment

8 - A science program has certain potential hazards - Reduce employee and student exposure hazards - Protect yourself from laboratory hazards - Protect others from laboratory hazards - Comply with regulations HSE Role Why lab safety?

10 Chemical Hazard Information Container Label Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) Chemical Handbooks or Internet Resources Lab Supervisor HSE Role Why lab safety? Hazards Minimum Requirements Mandatory Safety Rules Supervisor Responsibilities Hazards control Risk assessment

11 As a research scientist, you are responsible for assessing the potential Safety and Environmental hazards presented by your work When unusual or uncontrolled hazards may be predicted, you should consult with your supervisor and the responsible persons HSE Role Why lab safety?

15 1.Comply with Emergency Evacuation procedures. 2. Access to eyewash/drench hoses, safety showers, and fire extinguishers must be kept clear. 3. Eating and drinking in the laboratories and animal rooms is forbidden. 4. Adequate eye protection must be worn in areas where there is the potential for eye injury. HSE Role Why lab safety?

16 5. Open toed shoes and sandals are not acceptable footwear in laboratories or animal rooms. 6. All fires that cannot be extinguished with a fire extinguisher must be reported immediately. 7. Fires that have been extinguished must be reported to your area supervisor HSE Role Why lab safety? Hazards Minimum Requirements Mandatory Safety Rules Supervisor Responsibilities Hazards control Risk assessment

17 8. Immediately report any work related illness or injury to your Supervisor and the Occupational Health Department. 9. Tasks that present unusual hazards must be reviewed with the appropriate supervisor before they are conducted. 10. Labels on containers must not be defaced, and all containers of chemicals stored in common areas must be labeled as to the contents, hazards, name of owner and date. HSE Role Why lab safety?

18 11. Any chemicals, biological materials experimental compounds, or other hazardous materials must be shipped by CBI or Shipping and Receiving. 12. When working with select carcinogens, comply with all safety procedures. 13. Pipe ting by mouth is forbidden. HSE Role Why lab safety?

19 14. Gas cylinders must be secured whether in use or stored. Regulators must be removed and caps used when moving cylinders. 15. Materials with offensive odors must be decontaminated before disposal. 16. Do not modify electrical equipment yourself! The electrical shop will modify or fix electrical equipment for you SAFELY.

21 Waste container top left open Failure to remove old Chemical label Are there issues with secondary containment? Frayed electrical cord and/or use of electrical tape Sash above allowed height

22

23 Original label not removed & incompatibility No Start Date

24

25 Fire Extinguisher blocked Safety shower and eyewash are blocked Glass chemical containers stored on floor Exit/entrance door blocked Overall Poor Housekeeping

26 What’s Wrong Here?

27 Ceiling tile is missing. Overhead storage is a hazard to room occupants. Fume hoods are above allowable sash height Limit.

28

29 Containers are not sealed when not in use.

30

31 Food and drink consumables are open to cross contamination in a laboratory environment.
