Common Issues

Particular things that we’ll be looking for…

disposing old equipment
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.
syringes
Syringes
  • Syringes must always be disposed in a Sharps container...
  • Syringes of any material
  • Any part of a syringe (needles, bodies, plungers)
  • Regardlessofuse
  • includes unused syringes

Considered PIMW – must not be disposed in trash.

Waste transfer station workers can’t tell the difference.

slide16

Water lines

Water lines must be reinforced tubing.

Connections must be clamped.

Secured

Nylon reinforced PVC

slide17

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

Gloves are PPE

They protect YOU from – - the process that you’re performing - the materials that you’re handling

slide25

Gloves are PPE- sometimes

They protect YOU from – - the process that you’re performing - the materials that you’re handling

They protect your materials from you (skin particles, oils, etc.)

remove your ppe before using public equipment
Remove Your PPE

before using “public” equipment.

slide27

PPE is for LAB WORK.

Restroom

Public Ress

  • Do not handle personal items or touch “common fixtures” with your gloves.
  • Transport your materials through public areas in a manner that doesn’t require you to wear gloves.
  • Consider gloves to be “single task” use.
  • Gloves are useful for protection. As always, this is true only if used sensibly.
transporting chemicals
Transporting Chemicals
  • Always transport chemicals using secondary containment.
  • Chemicals and equipment are NOT to be transported on passenger elevators. Use the freightelevators.
  • Do not transport chemicals or heavy carts through the 2nd floor MRL hallway interpass. Use the 1st or 3rd floor hall to transport items between buildings.
slide31

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
slide32

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
slide33

Cut from Sharp Object

  • 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
slide34

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.
slide35

Lessons - in a broad sense

  • 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.
