Remove from heat and measure the temperature as accurately as possible using your laboritory thermometer. Within the overall structure, interactivity through demos and gaming simulations will be used for reinforcement. If beakers and flasks must be stacked, use a sheet of corrugated cardboard between the layers. These incidents have triggered a broader discussion of how serious incidents can be prevented in the future and how best to train researchers and emergency personnel to respond appropriately when incidents do occur. Format and Writing Style Information and instruction will be presented via text and graphics, Flash animations, and interactions.
Specifically, the level of importance attached to safety by university leadership, the way these leaders promote safety as a core institutional value, the way they direct resources, and the structure of incentives and reporting relationships they support all affect the degree of priority given to safety practices. So do your reports with a smile. We also used the Course Management System in Blackboard to track learner access and performance. Clean, tag and date eyewash facilities and safety showers regularly. Using appropriate measures to control identified hazards, including consistent and proper use of engineering controls, personal protective equipment, and administrative controls; 6.
You also introduce the issue or the thing that you are to investigate. Principal investigators should require their students to utilize this system. Ensure proper care for live specimens during vacations. We hope that this list helped you learn more about the advantages of having a safety program for your organization. Splash Screen Course Title Credits Main Navigation Menu to modules 1-3 Module 1, Loss Control: Moving Beyond the Tip of the Iceberg This module will introduce loss control.
Supervisors have particular responsibility for those people who work under them. Be sure to record your unknown number. I wanted to interview further members to evaluate their level of knowledge regarding lab safety practices. I had originally seen myself as a shared facilitator, but ended up having to tell people what to do, this is not my leadership strength, and I work best as a team facilitator. Recommendation 1: The president and other institutional leaders must actively demonstrate that safety is a core value of the institution and show an ongoing commitment to it. This project, requested by several departments of the University of Colorado, was supported and funded by the University Leadership Development Institute.
Blackboard components will be used for quiz and feedback teaching methods. Within this constraint, institutional head s of research and department chairs should consider the resources they have available for safety when considering or designing programs, and identify types of research that can be done safely with available and projected resources and infrastructure. There should be a written safety program describing the various activities that will go on to help ensure that the policy in 1 is implemented. Recommendation 3: All institutions face a challenge of limited resources. But before you either start whining or yawning, let me appease you by saying that this article will surely help you in one activity and subject—writing a chemistry report. Aside from getting to know some of its parts, you also have to know its importance, so that you get motivated in writing one. Upon lab clean up, throw materials in proper containers and do not pour acids down the sink.
Approximately half the recommendations are presented in this article. You might consider creating a diagram to show, in a simple and visually effective manner, the sequence of events related to the incident and include this in your incident report. Finally we did encounter some problems with our thermometer in the first trial, but this was fixed by replacing it at the stockroom. High importance is assigned to safety at all times, not just when it is convenient or does not threaten personal or institutional productivity goals. We are in school in the hopes of becoming professionals and make our dreams come true.
Where electrical cords must run across walkways, provide covers to avoid tripping hazards. Module 4 the final quiz module will consist of three to four simulated interactive lab situations that combine the information provided in module 1-3. To report an emergency, dial 911 from any landline or cell phone, or use one of the blue light emergency phones. Install eyewash fountains, safety showers, first aid kits and fire blankets as noted. It's a good idea to consult other lab reports, submitted by a different group that received a good grade or is well-respected. The clients requested a conceptual model to teach learners to respect safety and develop a planning process for safe lab practices. Traditionally, safety performance has been measured using lagging or after-the-fact indicators, such as numbers of accidents and lost-time injuries.
Permission is granted to freely copy, adapt, and distribute individual Study Guides in print format in non-commercial educational settings that benefit learners. The client has requested that we intersperse text with activity approximately every 5 pages—the content and needs for each module will drive this. An error analysis is usually here, although it may be its own section. Conclusion 8: A high-quality training program is an important element of a strong, positive safety culture. In response to the statement of task and building on the discussion in the preceding chapters, a series of findings have been identified, conclusions made, and recommendations presented. Maintaining an updated chemical and hazardous material inventory for the laboratory; 7. To ensure that useful data are available, a change in reporting and the availability and sharing of information is necessary.
