  1. Computer Safety and Work Habits

  2. Safety and the Computer • Handling • Ensuring the complete safety of the computer system • Applying all preventive measure for future safety of the system and the user • Reading instructions and manual operation • Understanding limits and capability of the system • Positioning and placement of the system.

  3. Continuation… • System Physical safety • Inventory of parts by recording serial numbers and model number of its parts • Locking and closing case for safety • Ensuring room safety putting alarm system and markers to the system • Caution and precaution to the system before and after use • Use of the right software and components

  4. Continuation.. • Technician safety • First Aid boxes are placed around the Laboratory, as are lists of qualified First Aiders. • Follow the instruction procedures in opening and handling any computer parts • Ensure your personal safety in handling computers • Wear necessary gadgets to protect you to any possible electrocution or explosion • Use the right instrument in testing and repairing computer • Replacement of the right components

  5. Discharging the Monitor’s Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) • Unplug our monitor from the outlet then turn it on • Use 20 watts 100 ohms resistor to discharge the capacitor in the power supply • In servicing the flyback or high voltage section make sure that you use insulated wrench or screw driver • Ground the cathode cap of the flyback after removing it from the picture tube

  6. Disposal of Computer Parts and Components • Electronic components need to be disposed properly to avoid any possible contamination and evaporation of poisonous contents • Save any possible components that are not damage for future use • Mark all defective cards or components to avoid any possible confusion in the future • Disposed discarded computers to a legal dumping sites to avoid any possible health hazards

  7. Continuation.. • Disposal of Computer Parts and Components • Review Questions

  8. Policy on Environmental Issues • University or computer shops will comply fully with environmental legislation and officially approved codes of practice, and will make continued efforts: • to promote sound environmental management policies and practices in the work of all Faculties, Departments, and other institutions; • to increase awareness of environmental responsibilities amongst staff and students; • to work with other agencies locally, nationally, and internationally to promote appropriate environmental policies; • to minimise waste and pollution, and to operate effective waste management procedures;

  9. Continuation.. • to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels; • to reduce water consumption; • to promote a purchasing policy which will give preference, as far as practicable, to those products and services which cause the least harm to the environment; • to avoid use, wherever possible, of environmentally damaging substances, materials, and processes; • to maintain the grounds and buildings of the University estate in an environmentally sensitive way; • to have regard to environmental factors as far as practicable in respect of the growth of the University and the integration of new developments into the local environment; • to encourage modes of transport by staff and students which minimise the environmental impact;

  10. Safety links • Some Departmental documents are available locally, such as • The Departmental Safety Policy • The intention is to keep two copies of all paper documents, one in the library and the other set as a reference copy. The currently available titles are: • (see the Building Services Manager) • There are also some internal notes, mainly intended for members of the committee: • The Committee's Secretary's jobs • Other Committee Member's jobs • Various University web pages may be of use • The Safety Office web page • The Occupational Health Service web page • The West Cambridge Safety Committee web page • The CS RSI and Speech Assisted Computing pages. • The Disability Resource Centre web page • The University also publishes a number of documents on the web. Unless the Department has published its own document, the University document is assumed to be Departmental `Policy', `Best Practice', `Guidelines' or `advice' as appropriate. • Statement of Health and Safety Policy (2004/01/06) ( Notice 1998/02/11 and earlier 2003/06/11 draft) • Disability and Employment Policy (1997/07/16) • Policy on Environmental Issues (1996/06/26) • Maternity Policy & Procedure (2003/04) • The Little Green Safety Book (2002) • Safety course for new graduate students on Risk Assessment (2003/08) • Meningitis Guidelines (2004/09/28) • Guidelines on the Management of Students at Risk of Anaphylaxis (2004/04/02) • Letter about Evac+Chairs and Fire Safety Arrangements for Disabled Persons (2004/07) including Guidance for writing a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) • notes on Barbecue Safety HSD141B (undated - 2005/07) (copy) • As central authorities have not yet managed to produce documents covering all areas, in some cases those of other departments are the best available, e.g. • Resources for DSOs from phy. • Dept of Physics (mostly PDF) e.g. Safety Manual Risk Assessment form and instructions • Dept of Engineering • Other relevant pages include • HEFCE Disability Statement (2000)
