1 Lower Ground Floor Induction Samuels Building F25

2 This induction is to make you aware of: The risk and hazards associated with working on the lower ground floor of the Samuels Building The control of those hazards to prevent harm to yourself and others Even if you are not working in the labs, you need to be aware of the hazards in the labs nearby Purpose

3 GBSME school induction UNSW WHS training Supervisors Induction For full information see UNSW WHS training site GSBME Induction Prerequisites

4 GSBME LG Floor Plan

5 The normal hours of work are 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday Undergraduates are not permitted to do non clerical work after hours. All afterhours access requires special permission. After hours work must conform to the UNSW HS322 Working After Hours Guideline (on the UNSW WHS policy and guidelines website) and have the approval of your supervisorWorking After Hours Guideline Access Hours

6 GSBME health and safety documents can be found on the UNSW Safesys databaseSafesys You must read ENG-GBIOM-RMF-347 Risks associated with working in the laboratories of the Lower Ground Floor Samuels Building Any tasks that you do must be covered by an SWP approved by your supervisor and the risk must be documented and assessed. Risk Management and Safe Working Procedures (SWP)

7 HazardControl Physical effects from chemical exposure All chemical handling requirements are identified and used to prevent exposure health effects, slips trips and falls Know emergency procedures, clean up spill immediately good house keeping Burns or ignition of materials High temperature soldering irons and furnaces used with care Electric shock Check all equipment before use or after moving. Ensure leads are undamaged. DO NOT modify 240V equipment unless licensed. If equipment is faulty, tag out of use immediately Air quality - Gas concentration/Low or out of air Do not enter labs when alarm is sounding. Follow emergency procedure Ergonomics – over use injury and manual handling Training and correct set up. Know symptoms of overuse Manual handling-physical injury, crush, cuts, eye damage. Correct tool use, eye protection Restricted areas -injury to persons or economic damage to equipment and devices Do not go into restricted areas without specific training Noise, dust and sharpsMinimise exposure to noisy working equipment. Wear hearing equipment for exposure over 2 minutes. Use extraction equipment or fume hood to minimise dust exposure with mills, lathes or lasers. Wear P2 dust mask if necessary. DONOT use scalpel blades or needles unless training. Take care when using glass slides and always dispose in sharps containers LG Lab-Risks and Hazards

8 Your SWP will document the specific personal protective equipment you will require for your work. Covered foot wear is always required in the lab. Selection use and maintenance must comply with the UNSW WHS guidelines HS659 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) GuidelinePersonal Protective Equipment (PPE) Guideline Personal Protective Equipment

9 The use of safety equipment should be documented in your SWP with attention to the emergency procedures section. Lower Ground Labs are equipped with: –Chemical fume hood –Emergency spill kits –Two emergency eyewash and shower stations –Three emergency lab shut down buttons that will cut power to the labs –Air quality alarms in LG10a, b, c, d and LG11 rooms to monitor asphyxiation gases and oxygen content in the small rooms –Manual handling trolleys for heavy objects and gas cylinders –Vacuum exhaust ports for soldering and small fume hazards –Fire extinguishers and fire hose reels at either end of the building There are two emergency break glass boxes. One near the kitchen and one outside the lift at the eastern end of the building. If there is an emergency such as fire or large dangerous chemical spill, break the glass which will immediately evacuate the building and alert emergency services. Lab Safety Equipment

10 Records are kept on the GSBME database but will be moved over to Safesys in the future.GSBME databaseSafesys Please contact the lab manager or your WHS rep if you have any difficulties locating the records you requirecontact Laboratory Records

11 All chemicals must be added to the chemical register. If you bring a chemical to the school or dispose and or remove a chemical it must be tracked on the register A new UNSW wide register Sciquest ERM is being implemented. Please talk to your supervisor if you have any questionsSciquest ERM Registers

12 All biological material is forbidden in the lower ground labs unless it can wear a lab coat Biological Material-Forbidden

13 All Chemicals must be registered on the database and stored in the correct location. There are designated storage areas for hazardous substances such as flammable, corrosive, toxic materials Storage use and disposal must comply with the safety data sheet. What is a Safety Data Sheet? A Safety Data Sheet (SDS), previously called a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), is a document that provides information on the properties of hazardous chemicals and how they affect health and safety in the workplace. For example an SDS includes information on: the identity of the chemical, health and physicochemical hazards, safe handling and storage procedures, emergency procedures, and disposal considerations. SDS information is essential when writing an SWP in order to understand the health hazard, disposal and emergency clean up requirements All chemicals must be correctly labelled Chemicals Storage and Safety Data Sheets

14 Black lined bags –are for domestic waste only, things you would find in your home Non hazardous laboratory waste bins –have a clear liner and are used for disposable lab items like plastic. Chemical waste –must be segregated and disposed via the UNSW contractor. Hazardous material –must be made safe before disposal. Nothing but water goes in the drains You must documents your specific waste disposal requirements in your SWP. Consult the lab manager or the HS321 Laboratory Hazardous Waste Disposal Guideline if you have any concernsLaboratory Hazardous Waste Disposal Guideline Waste Disposal

15 This is covered in more detail in the School induction package The lab response plan –The Arrhh run away plan –Arrh –Alert people to the problem –Run away –keep yourself safe. Do not attempt to deal with an emergency situation unless you are certain you can deal with the risks The Building Alarms –Beep Beep Beep – alert get ready to leave but do not leave the building and into the swarm of killer bees –Whoop Whoop Whoop –leave immediately and go to the Michael Birt Garden assembly point Maps are found at the entrances to LG offices Even if you do not work in the labs or with anything hazardous you are in close proximity and should know what to do in an emergency. Please note if there is a smell of chlorine please inform the area supervisor of room LG10d. Chlorine can be detected at very low concentrations and is unlikely to be immediately hazardous but could indicate a leak of laser gas. Lab Emergency and Evacuation Response

16 Emergency Procedure flipcharts are distributed in hardcopy throughout the University and are also available The flipcharts outline procedures for the following: bomb threat environmental evacuation fire hazardous materials medical emergency natural disasters personal threat power outage suspect package Contact: Security Services 9385 6666. Emergency Procedures Flipchart

17 GMP protocols are vital for the development of human implantable devices. The grey room(LG11) and clean room (LG11b) sections are dedicated to this work as various areas of the main lab. DO NOT touch anything in these areas, unless you have been specifically trained Restricted Areas GMP-Good Manufacturing Practices

18 Electrostatic discharge areas require additional training. Do not touch these areas and take care when working nearby There are high powered lasers in rooms LG 10b, c and d. You must never tamper with these machines or their covers unless you are qualified and have completed an SWP covering the risks The furnace equipment in room LG10a is highly specialised and potentially dangerous. You must not enter these areas unless you have been specifically trained. Restricted Areas ESD Areas and Lasers and Furnaces

19 These rooms have strict entry requirements to control particulate contamination. They are an important part of the manufacture of human implants and Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) You must not enter this area unless you have received specific training. Restricted Areas Grey Room and Clean Room (LG11, a, b)

22 As no biological materials permitted on LG there are no specific immunisation requirements. Please check HS427 Immunisation - Questionnaire and Authorisation Form if you work with biological material elsewhere.Immunisation - Questionnaire and Authorisation Form Immunisation

23 LG is a large communal office space –DO NOT eat smelly food at your desk. There is a lunch room on level 1 of the Samuels building and a range of eating places on upper campus –DO NOT leave the kitchen a mess. Always leave it tidier then you found it. –Do join the coffee club and enjoy the amenities Kitchen Area

24 We often have important visitors through this area. If you get an email asking you to tidy, please clean up very thoroughly and then ask how you can help in other areas. Do not do lab work at your desk-no soldering or gluing or rewiring. Ask Admin team before you move desks Office Area

25 Do not enter areas that you have not been trained or authorised to enter, unless you are escorted by someone who has been suitably trained. If your swipe card does not work and you think it should please contact your supervisor or lab management Please do not let people follow you through the swipe doors. Ask if they have access or who they wish to see. Do not confront if there is a threat. Call security on 56666 and report the incident. Please keep valuables out of sight and secure Unauthorised Entry

26 There are specific SWP and RA ‘s available. Please speak to your supervisor. –If you want to use soldering irons –If you want to modify electronics –If you want to work with lasers –If your want access to grey room –If you want to use the furnace If you need to move compressed gases, you will needs additional training SWPs and RAs

27 Now you have read this safety information please complete the quiz and send it to the lab manager. You will need to attend a short tour and provided you have completed the prerequisites then you can have swipe access to the lower ground labs. Thank You
