1 Radiation Protection and Safety This introduction may take about 15 minutes Continue

2 Welcome to the Introduction on Radiation Protection and Safety at PSI During this course you will be asked to answer a couple of questions. At the end you will be guided to a form, which you should fill in and print. This form must then be shown to the PSI staff when you pick up your personal dosimeter. A copy with signature of this form is to be send to the section Sicherheit, OFLC/U105. Continue Back

3 safety at the place of work Various kinds of danger at PSI Continue Back

4 Continue Back General guidelines in case of emergency Emergency phone number serious accidents (e.g. fire or injured people) phone: 3333 Please provide the following information: Who reports? please provide name and phone number What happened? kind of accident, have people been injured? Where did it happen? facility / building When did it happen? time of accident

5 General guidelines in case of emergency Minor accidents / events During office hours please call: Minor injuries:3333 Accidents caused by electricity:8880 Out of office hours: 3333 Accidents involving radioactive material or ionizing radiation: radiation protection staff Phone number displayed at the entrance to the area In case of no answer: radiation protection stand by8707 or accelerator control room3301 Continue Back

6 General guidelines in case of emergency Backcontinue

7 General telefonnumber for questions about safety at work: 8870 General instructions for safety at work : Safety, Health Protection and Environmental Protection at PSI AW e Other technical instruction (mostly in german) about safety at work can be found under Safety at work Continue Back

8 Pay attention and be generally careful when working with electrical installations. Switch off power or disconnect power cable before starting to work. Special knowledge is required for working on low-, medium- and high-voltage devices. Please leave that to the respective experts. In case of questions please consult your local contact or staff from the department infrastructure and electrotechnics. Before starting to work at electrical installations, please take notice of AW Electrical Installations Continue Back

9 Safety with Lasers Continue Back contacts: T. Lippert phone: 4076 (specialist)T. Lippert What is important:Laser classification. For classes 3b and 4 special safety requirements are mandatory (protecting glasses, warning lights, signs, access control…). For classes 1M, 2 and 3A(R): warning sign and laser declaration. Standards:PSI: AW e and SUVA (flyer Achtung Laserstrahl)AW e

10 Biolocial Risks A special guideline Einschliessungsverordnung des Bundes rules the handling of biolocical material. For certain kind of work a special registration or a dedicated bio laboratory is needed. If you are going to carry out such work, please contact K. BallmerK. Ballmer, phone 4165 to properly register the project. Further Information Continue Back

11 Lab Rules for handling biological material at PSI (for questions contact K. Ballmer-Hofer, phone 4165 or The plasmids, microbial and cell systems registered at present at PSI are regulated legally as biosafety level 1 (BL1), i.e. a weak classification just requiring 'good laboratory practice' standards. Since some of the plasmids used at PSI carry sequences encoding signalling molecules, the stricter BL2 rules are applied. I would like to remind you of an old experiment where it was shown that oncogene DNA (ras) applied to the skin of mice induced tumors! The rules below conform to the BL2 laboratory safety requirements, an in depth coverage of the biosafety legislation is given at: Before starting work with biological material you must read the instructions given under the above mentioned internet address. In particular you must check the biosafety level to be applied to work with the organisms used. Some simple rules in brief: All live biological material must be killed before release into the environment. Material that was in contact with cells, bacteria, yeast etc. must be decontaminated with a disinfectant such as 1% Bomix or alcohol. All solid materials such as disposable pipet tips, plates, tubes etc. that were in contact with biological material such as DNA or live organisms must be collected in special containers and autoclaved before being discarded. No food, drinks, dishes etc. are allowed in the labs. Do not use containers such as glass jars that contained food for laboratory items. When working with viruses, a vertical laminar flow hood must be used. Before working in a tissue culture room, decontaminate your hands with Sterilin. Clean bench of sterile hood with alcohol before and after use. Rinse hose of waste pump with alcohol when finished. Remove trash when bins are full from laboratories. Biological waste must be autoclaved before discarding. When emptying liquid waste, rinse waste container and add fresh disinfectant such as Bomix. Autoclaves used for decontamination of biological material must be tested every 3 months using bacterial indicator strips. Continue Back

12 High Pressure Devices If you need to work with unknown pressure devices please request prior assistance from your local contact. In case of further problems please contact: S. BondtS. Bondt, phone: 2952 Continue Back

13 Using Cranes For the use of cranes limited to 1000 kg an introduction by an expert is required. For cranes working in the range kg an expert must be consulted unless a special 1-day course had been taken. For loads > 5000 kg PSI expert staff has to be involved. Contact:David Reinhard phone: PSI Guidelines - Continue Back

14 Fire Protection Dont store any inflammable material Please keep the escape routes clear Please inform your local contact if you detect missing fire warning devices Generally: comply with existing regulations Continue Back

15 Chemicals Please label all chemicals clearly. Retaining tubs should be used to store liquid chemicals. Consult the relevant data sheet before starting to work. Please dispose any chemicals at the dedicated central collection point (contact: A. Frei, phone 4302).A. Frei In case of problems please contact the PSI expert for chemicals and toxicology: P.Hasler, phone 2842.P.Hasler Continue Back

16 Magnetic Fields Magnetic stray fields might be dangerous. Please make use of warning signs and lamps. Avoid the approach to stray fields of a magnet if you wear a pace maker. All magnetizable items (tools, credit cards etc) must be removed from the range of the stray field of a magnet before switching on. Contact: C. Wernli phone: 2357C. Wernli Continue Back

17 Cryogenics and Liquid Gases Continue Back Please wear protective glasses and gloves. Avoid direct contact of liquid gases with your skin. During filling of Dewars please pay attention to your surrounding. Use liquid gases in well ventilated rooms only.

18 Question What is the emergency phone number in case of serious accidents like fire or injured people?

19 This was not the right number! Continue

20 Correct ! The emergency phone number in case of serious accidents like fire or injured people is: 3333 ! Continue Please provide the following information: Who reports? please provide name and phone number What happened? kind of accident, have people been injured? Where did it happen? facility / building When did it happen? time of accident

25 Radiation Protection ContinueBack During your stay at PSI you might be exposed to ionizing radiation. These places are located within controlled areas and are labeled explicitely. Within the controlled areas special guidelines must be complied with by everybody. In particular, the guidelines displayed at the entrances to zones must be followed.

37 Before removing tools or other items from the controlled area call the PSI radiation protection staff for the mandatory control measurement ContinueBack

38 When leaving a controlled area you must make use of the monitors to check for potential contamination. ContinueBack

39 Question What is needed before taking out items from a controlled area? You call the radiation protection staff to carry out the control measurement. If no activation or contamination is expected you are free to remove the material without further check. You carry out the control measurement by yourself and take the items along.

40 Correct! Please call a radiation protection staff member to carry out the control measurement. These persons are also available if you need any further information concerning radiation protection at PSI. Continue

41 The answer was wrong! Only the radiation protection staff members are allowed to carry out the control measurement and to check out items from a controlled area. Continue
