This Lab & Shop 安全 Program has been prepared to minimize the risk of injury and illness when working in Acadia's various laboratory and shop areas. Laboratories and science/engineering shops are potentially dangerous places, but the danger can be reduced to an acceptable level through the application of appropriate controls.
该方案主要涉及用 化学和生物危害, and does not deal in any depth with the other hazards such as physical hazards (magnetic fields, lasers, and sources of infrared or ultraviolet radiation, noise, and ultrasound), or radioisotopes. Guidance on safely managing these other hazards is found elsewhere on the Lab & Shop Safety page and the Radiation 安全 page.
This Lab & Shop 安全 Program provides valuable health and safety guidance, but by no means can it be all-inclusive. Laboratory and shop faculty, staff and students will need to consult material safety data sheets, manufacturers' recommendations and other documents to develop adequate safe work practices that are often unique to each situation.
By documenting the inspection and the follow-up, laboratory and shop supervisors/principle investigators demonstrate their commitment to health and safety. A variety of checklists are provided on Acadia's Health & 安全 卷筒纸site, for local printing. There are specific checklists for some labs and shops, as well as a generic General Lab and Shop Inspection Checklist for use in all other areas.
