First Aid Boxes

First Aid Boxes should be kept stocked according to the list posted on the front or within the box.

All First Aid material is available from the Chemistry Lab Supplies and Staff in charge of laboratories should nominate a member of that laboratory to see that the stock of the First Aid box is regularly maintained.


Emergency (Fire) Alarms

The buildings in the Chemistry Department are equipped with a fire detection system that will sound the alarms if a sensor detects flame, heat or smoke or if the break-glass alarm button is activated.

There is unfortunately a high incidence of false alarms on campus due to ageing and defective fire detectors. In the event of an alarm, spend a few seconds only in turning off heating equipment or making your experiment safe before leaving the building by the route that has been described to you. Do not use the lifts. Assemble at the designated area for a roll-call.

Do not attempt to enter the building until you have been told it is safe to do so.
