12 Safety Inspection: Improvements Less accumulation of waste chemicals before processing for disposal Storage of toxics/carcinogens not used Storage of large quantities when less is sufficient

13 Common Issues Particular things that we’ll be looking for…

14 Disposing old equipment Take responsibility to find out if there are any ‘items of concern’ in equipment that you’re going to dispose. Can’t simply throw everything away any more. Toxic materials, such as PCBs, dyes, batteries, etc. must be disposed properly. State Law: No electronics may be thrown in the trash. If you are unsure, contact us.

15 Syringes Considered PIMW – must not be disposed in trash. Waste transfer station workers can’t tell the difference. Syringes must always be disposed in a Sharps container... Syringes of any material Any part of a syringe (needles, bodies, plungers) Regardless of use includes unused syringes

16 Water lines Water lines must be reinforced tubing. Connections must be clamped. Secured Nylon reinforced PVC

17 Water lines Water lines that aren’t pressurized are exempt but must still be secure. Example: water lines that free-flow into the drain. Secured BadGood

29 Transporting Chemicals Always transport chemicals using secondary containment. Chemicals and equipment are NOT to be transported on passenger elevators. Use the freight elevators. Do not transport chemicals or heavy carts through the 2 nd floor MRL hallway interpass. Use the 1 st or 3 rd floor hall to transport items between buildings.

30 Incidents at Illinois…

31 Fire in ESB Very brief summary Oil bath in fume hood overheated and caught fire Attempt to use fire extinguisher spread the fire Lessons learned Damage confined to fume hood Temperature probe was not immersed in oil bath (set to 70°C) Training needed on use of fire extinguishers Avoid unattended operations No one pulled the alarm, but the Fire Dept. was called

32 Implosion of Glass Tube Very brief summary Lab worker placing Schlenk tube under vacuum into glove box While opening ante chamber, tube was struck and imploded causing lacerations Lessons learned Prepare SOPs for operations Always wear appropriate PPE (in this case: gloves) Know emergency procedures

33 Very brief summary Lab worker cleaning glassware, tried to unclog sink and was cut by cover slip Lessons learned Use discretion on procedures for cleaning glassware and clearing clogged drains Good housekeeping is important Cut from Sharp Object

34 Reporting Spills/Injury Very brief summary The men’s bathroom in MRL was smeared with what appeared to be blood. Lessons learned Report spills/injury to MRL staff. Refer to the DRS webpage regarding spill response if spill occurs after hours. If there is an injury, seek medical attention first and report to the MRL Business Office immediately afterward to complete paperwork for an injury report – must happen within 24 hours. Do not leave bio-hazardous messes without informing someone.

35 Proper safety training will help everyone to be prepared. Wearing PPE is the easiest thing one can do be safe. Reporting of incidents and near misses provides a valuable opportunity to learn. SOPs minimize consequences. Template includes a signature line for documentation of training – this isn’t by chance. Without documentation, essentially no training has occurred in the eyes of regulatory/investigating bodies. Lessons - in a broad sense
