Duty personal at Department of Chemistry

When you move in a laboratorium you have to treat everything as if it was dangerous. Therefore:


Anyway if anything breaks leave it. As a main rule inform in stead one of the laboratoriums own staff. The broken, how inconsiderable it might looks, it can be dangerous or be a result of many days work. A knowledgeable person maybe can save some - opposite if you start to collect everything there is a chance that everything will be lost.    

If a bootle breaks and the content runs out, you have to leave the laboratorium immediately. You may not start to wipe it up, because the content can be corrosive or toxic. Nevertheless if you get anything on you, then after leaving the laboratorium, flush it with a lot of water. Afterward contact a knowledgeable person, who can decide what to do further.     

If you observe anything which seems strange and make you feel insecure, for instance strange smells, sounds or smoke - you have to immediately leave the room and contact a knowledgeable person, who can decide if it is dangerous or not. Remember that the working environment representative is there for you and they have to solve problems for you.


It is better to ask one time to many, than one to little!!


Remember by accident:

Dont touch anything, but leave the room

Flush of with a lot of water, if you got anything on you

Get some of the laboratoriums staff

Demand to workmen and instruction about risk

  • Department of Chemistry seeks a high work environment level. The department of Chemistry therefore requires that external companies show intentions and ability to maintain present work environment roles at the Dept. of Chemistry. If a company employee breaks recommendation/legislation, this will be pointed out to the company. If this is repeated, the company concerned will not be used in the future at Department of Chemistry.
  • Technological Administration inform the workmen's company about possible risks and specific risks. For instance prevalence of asbestos. This will take place when the assignment is ordered.  
  • The workmen's company must contact the Department management or the structural responsible before the work begins. When this happens you need to discuss and agree the frame of the work. Among others:
  • The Department management/the structural responsible note the essence of the agreement and circulate this by mail to other employees in the building. By doing so we make sure that employees in the planning can take into account, a coming work and possible disturbances caused by this. Moreover complaints on insufficient information can be avoided. E-mail is sent in copy to the project manager.
