Laboratory members understand that laboratory tasks involving increased risk:
a. Require adequate training and safety equipment (gloves, lab coat, goggles, hood, etc.)
b. Must be carried out only after informing surrounding lab workers who will provide help in case of an accident
c. Must be performed only during normal working hours (8.00-17.30) when Emergency personnel is present. You are absolutely forbidden to work by yourself (expecially during off-hours) in refrigeration room, or when engaging in complex and dangerous operations!
Every person, in the occurrence of an event judged abnormal or dangerous or in the presence of an alarm signal must conform to the following main BEHAVIORAL NORMS IN EMERGENCY CASES to keep in mind: KEEP CALM AND DON’T PANIC.

In case of EVACUATION ALARM (alarm signal with CONTINUOUS sound)

  1. Secure your machine and / or equipment (e.g. shut down the computer, the photocopying, etc.).
  2. Do not use the telephone service for personal calls.
  3. Dress up, fetch your personal effects, shut the room’s doors and windows, leave calmly the workplace and wait for further instructions (e.g.. for the alarm to stop and/or for evacuation).
  4. In case of evacuation, reach for the emergency exit (see emergency plans), with absolute calm, in line and without running, following the signs posted up to the walls, or the directions of safety staff.
  5. Do not use elevators.
  6. After reaching the evacuation point according to the assigned emergency plan, hold your position. The safety staff will check that nobody strays, and then move from the meeting point to a nearby zone, in order not to interfere with rescue operations, until the emergency is solved.
