  3. Instruction Regulated by Law § 12 ArbSchG GUV Once a year, inoral form Duty of documentation

  4. Who is to instruct? All full employed people of the University of Bonn Trainees, Students, Visiting reseachers Craftsmen, mechanics, Cleaning staff

  5. Laws & Regulations GUV (I 850-0/ SR 2005 / I 8553/ TRGS 526 - Laboratories) ArbSchG BetrSichV BetrVerfG ChemG GefStoffV

  6. Advice A workplace specific instruction can be created in parts from this operating instruction. In any case it has to be modifified and upgraded to the needs of the indiviual workplaces of the different working groups.

  7. Basics principles • Generell opening hours: 7.00-18.30 (main entrance) • Access: only legitimated persons • Smoking ban in the whole building • Tidiness in offices and laboratories • Use of workshops (fine mechanics & electronics) only in the opening hours • Don´t listen to music during work, you might not hear a fire-alarm or other warnings

  8. Basics principles Nonsmoker – Yes, please! Stop smoking – it´s worth it because after • 20 minutes regularizes blood-pressure and pulse • one day the risk of a heart attack is reduced • two days the senses of smell- and taste improve • three months the blood flow improves • one year the risk of a cardiac disease reduces about 50 % • five years the risk of a stroke or lung cancer is significantly reduced

  9. Rulesfor the utilization of facilities • Best care und attention • Don´t work alone in the laboratory • Safe and appropriate construction of experimental equipment • Open access to technical and security facilities

  10. Handling ofsecurity and protection facilities • Fire prevention: It´s forbidden to inhibit closing mechanisms of any doors • No misuse of security facilities • Keep escape routes clear • No bikes on the corridors • Inflammable materials on corridors  Nebulisation in case of fire danger of smoke intoxication • Fume hood / cupboards: close front sliding panel • Emergency Showers: function tests aleast monthly (Body shower: 30 L/min, Eye shower: 6 L/min)

  11. Ergonomics of a Computer workplaceBildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung • An ergonomic computer workplace is a health- promoting measure • Good ergonomics is the ideal setup of Monitor, Keyboard, Illumination, desk and computer chair • Furthermore the set-up of working appliance and working environment are of concern • Detailled Information on „Sicherheitsinformation 04/2000“ from the web-pages of Dep. 4.2

  12. Ergonomics of a Computer workplaceBildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung • The advantages of a flat screen monitors • flicker-free • space-saving • little weight • Economic • low radiation and heat effects • high contrast pictures • little reflections • low bias BGI 650 Bildschirm- und Büroarbeitsplätze www.bgbau-medien.de/pdf2/zh_z418.pdf

  13. Ergonomics of a Computer workplaceBildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung Keyboard • separated from the monitor, variable, adjustment, inclinable • free space as hand rest • made of surface materials with little reflectionpower • clear lettering • use all ten fingers for typewriting

  14. Ergonomics of a Computer workplaceBildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung Computer chair • permanent inclinable seat back • Anatomical formed seating area which reacts on changes of bearing • synchronical mechanics which keep seat back and seating area in an ideal angle • spring system that absorbs pressure on the backbone

  15. Ergonomics of a Computer workplaceBildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung Five rules for ergonomical seating: • Rule: Arms and legs can be held in a right angle • Rule: use full seating area 3. Rule: Sit upright and use seat back 4. Rule: Sit dynamic, move! Take exercise 5. Rule: Use arm and backrest and handrest

  16. Ergonomics of a Computer workplaceBildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung Alternative Office Furniture • Ergonomic analysis advises to dynamic sitting, it strength the back and prevents painful discomforts • Dynamic sitting is easy! Just use alternative office furniture like gymballs, kneeling chairs etc. • BUT! These seating alternatives also hold some risks within • Advice: Use both alterative furniture and standard office chairs • Use gymballs for exercises at rest periods

  17. Merkblatt zur Gestaltung von Bildschirmarbeitsplätzen • Alternative Office Furniture Gymball Pendulum stool Kneeling chair

  18. Ergonomics of a Computer workplace Bildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung Some important advices • Monitor and Keyboard  Monitor at least 17“ and 72 Hertz  flat Keyboard, 50-100 mm distance from the edge of the table  only use low-radiation monitors  use a wrist seating • Computer chair  slewable, with five rollers, adjustable in height and backrest

  19. Ergonomics of a Computer workplace Bildschirmarbeitsplatzverordnung • Illumination  workspace illumination low-reflection luminary  level of illumination at least 500 Lux • Desk  height of desk (if not height-adjustable): 720mm  legroom: 650mm(H)x580mm(B)x700mm(T)  tabletop: matt, not reflecting, at least: 800mm(T)x1600mm(L)

  20. Office keys/Master key system • Office keys are non-transferable • Keep them independant from private keys • It´s commended to fix the office keys with a ring or a chain at the clothes. For Master keys it´s obligatory. • A key security insurance is commended

  21. Fire alarm system/Fire warning I • If Works are necessary which are accompanied by smoke, dust or extensive heat, please inform the security representative • False fire-alarms are expensive! (€900.-) • In case of fire-alarm you will hear a loud continuous tone  Leave the building immediately over the stair-well • Information how to behave in case of fire hang out in the staircases • Inform yourself about the correct use of fire-extinguishers (fire-drill in summer?)

  22. Fire alarm system/Fire warning II In case of fire • Leave the building immediately, don´t use the elevator • If possible, turn-off all running media, like water, electricity, gas flow etc. • Holding area: parking side in front of the buildíng • Follow the instructions of the fire-brigade

  23. Ventilation systems • Disorders of the Ventillation system are emergency cases, please inform directly the technical department of the university (Abt. 4.3 - Technisches Facility Management Tel. 7600, 9777, NEW EMERGENCY NUMBER: 1111 in case of Technical Problems at night or at weekends) • In case of a technical fault you don´t have to fill in a service form • Troubles in the Ventilation system of the Laboratories?  Stop working immediately

  24. Personal Protection & Personal Protection Equipment The use of personal protective equipment was not sufficient in the last year

  25. Personal Protection & Personal Protection Equipment Something to think about: Do you wear safety glasses, trousers , sturdy shoes or a lab coat while working in the laboratory? Do you use suitable gloves while working with hazard substances? Do you use skin protection cream before and after finishing work with chemicals Have you ever looked into the Instructions for use of protective gloves?

  26. Personal Protection & Personal Protection Equipment I Eye protection/ Working with Lasers • During work in Laboratory wear safety glasses • There are special regulations for the works with Lasers. You will get informations from the Representative for Laser safety • Further Informations: GUV-V B2 / BGV B 2 „Laserstrahlung“ BGI 832 „Betrieb von Lasereinrichtungen“ In case of eye injury: visit the ophthalmologist Emergency Calls:0228 / 287 - 120000228 / 287 - 15109

  27. Personal Protection & Personal Protection Equipment II Body protection / Skin protection • During works in Laboratory wear long-sleeved cotton work coats • During works in Laboratory wear anti-sliding sturdy shoes • During works in Laboratory with corrosive, poisonous or hazardous chemicals wear protective gloves • What protective gloves are useful for your work? Look into the skin-protection-plan (to get from the Abt. 4.2 or the security representative) + GUV-R 195 / BGR 195 • Disposable gloves are unsuitable for the work with chemicals • Risk of contamination? Hold substitute clothes ready!
