HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Workers are as likely to have an accident in the
first six months at a workplace as during the
whole of the rest of their working life.
HSE, 2011
5
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • The extra risk at that time arises due to
  • Lack of experience working in a
  • new workplace
  • Lack of familiarity with the job
  • and the work environment
  • Reluctance to raise concerns (or
  • not knowing how to) and
  • Eagerness to impress workmates
  • and managers.

6
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • This means workers new to a site
  • May not recognise hazards as a
  • potential source of danger
  • May not understand 'obvious' rules
  • for use of equipment
  • May be unfamiliar with site layout,
  • especially where site hazards may
  • change from day to day and
  • May ignore warning signs and rules,
  • or cut corners.

HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Little France is a constantly evolving campus,
and is likely to remain so for many years.
Construction activity and movement of heavy
plant etc, throughout and all around the site,
are potential hazards for pedestrians and other
road users.
16
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Take care at all times when walking, cycling or
driving within or around the Little France campus.

HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Why Health Safety?
Accidents will occur in the best regulated
families

HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Context Justification
Typically, something in the order of 35 million
working days lost in the UK each year due to
accidents and ill-health.
HSE
19
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Typically something more than 350,000 reported
serious injuries per year in the UK
approximately one third of which are caused by
slipping and tripping.
HSE
20
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Approximately two million people annually suffer
ill-health which they believe is work-related.
HSE
21
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
The number of convictions resulting from action
by HSE in recent years amounts to approximately
one thousand per annum, with an average penalty
of 12,642 per case.
HSE
22
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Having said all of that, we have a good track
record for health and safety on this campus, and
we aim to keep it that way.
But we will need your help to achieve this.
23
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Health Safety
Its everybodys business!
24
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
And its a product of several factors ..

26
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Why Health Safety?
  • Mostly good housekeeping
  • Minimise potential for injury to
  • ? Yourself
  • ? Your co-workers
  • Plus a duty of care for
  • ? Cleaners
  • ? Contractors
  • ? Visitors etc

27
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • There is an abundance of Acts,
  • Regulations and Codes of
  • Practice, and more seems to be
  • added each year.
  • Furthermore, it is UofE policy
  • http//www.safety.ed.ac.uk/policy/
  • index.shtm
  • And we also need to minimise the
  • potential for civil litigation.

28
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • Section 2 of the Health Safety at Work Act 1974
    sets out a general duty for Employers to ensure,
    so far as is reasonably practicable, the health,
    safety and welfare at work of all employees and,
    in particular
  • Safe plant and systems of work
  • Safe use, handling, transport and storage of
  • substances and articles
  • Provision of information, instruction, training
    and
  • supervision
  • Safe place of work, access and egress and
  • Safe working environment and adequate welfare
  • facilities.

29
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • But the same Act also sets out the general duties
    of all Employees at work
  • Section 7(a) To take care for health and safety
    of
  • themselves and others who may be affected by
  • acts or omissions.
  • Section 7(b) To co-operate with employer so as
    to
  • enable compliance with statutory requirements.
  • Section 8 No person to intentionally or
    recklessly
  • interfere with or misuse anything provided in
    the
  • interests of health, safety or welfare.

30
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • Basically, this means
  • Complying with safety rules.
  • Obeying safety notices.
  • Following instructions from
  • Supervisors etc.
  • Attending training.
  • Informing Safety Advisor of hazards.
  • Contributing to risk assessments.
  • Practising good housekeeping.

41
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Local Rules
Each laboratory group must also prepare and
maintain written arrangements, specific to their
own work programme and unique laboratory
situation, but which are fully compatible with
the overarching Health and Safety arrangements
for Little France.
42
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
On discovering fire
43
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Activate a Fire Alarm Call Point
44
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Emergency Door Releases
It may be necessary to open some security doors
before proceeding along a fire escape route. Do
so by using the emergency door release panels
located alongside those doors, but most
magnetically secured doors in these buildings
will release automatically when the alarms sound.
45
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
The following arrangements apply equally to all
buildings on the Little France campus (the
Chancellors Building, Queens Medical Research
Institute, Scottish Centre for Regenerative
Medicine and Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh). So,
regardless of where you are when you first hear
fire alarms, this is what you should do
46
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Fire Alarm Sounds
  • Be aware of the two different alarm sounds that
    may be heard
  • Continuous sound ()
  • Intermittent sound (- - - - - - )
  • and the quite different reactions that are
    expected of you upon hearing each of these.

Note, however, that the signal for SCRM is a
voice message broadcast over loudspeakers.
47
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Continuous Alarm
People hearing a continuously sounding alarm
() should
Evacuate immediately!
48
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
So, when the alarms begin to sound continuously
.
Get up
Get out
And stay out!
49
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Intermittent Alarm
People hearing an intermittently sounding alarm
(- - - - - - - ) are being alerted to the
possibility that there is a fire in another part
of the building, but the area in which they are
hearing an intermittent alarm is not at immediate
risk and people there do not need to evacuate
immediately.
50
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
After raising the alarm
  • Update the emergency services
  • by dialling 2222 from any
  • extension at a safe location and
  • Report your name, the
  • address of the building, and the
  • precise location and nature of the
  • emergency.

51
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
And then
  • Proceed to the NEAREST escape
  • route (closing doors behind you).
  • Follow white-on-green running
  • man signs to the NEAREST exit.
  • Proceed to an Evacuation
  • Assembly Point.
  • Dont re-enter the building until
  • you are told that its safe to do so.

52
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Yes, but where is my Escape Route?
  • Look for white-on-green running
  • man signs, which point out the
  • best route to the exit closest to
  • where you are standing at the time
  • (wherever you are in the buildings)
  • when alarms start to sound.
  • Proceed in the direction indicated
  • by the arrow towards the nearest
  • exit.

53
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
What if the route is obstructed?
  • If so, simply turn around, proceed
  • away from the obstruction, and look
  • for signs pointing to the nearest
  • alternative exit.
  • Proceed in the direction indicated
  • by the white arrows towards the
  • nearest alternative exit.

54
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Where is the nearest Fire Exit?
  • Ultimately, the white-on-green
  • running man signs are pointing
  • you towards the Fire Exit closest to
  • where you are standing at the time
  • (wherever you are in the building).
  • The final exit will be signed like
  • this (see left) which, you will note,
  • has no white arrow.

55
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
And what do I do when I reach it?
  • Simply push the bar (or operate an
  • alternative door release
  • mechanism) and proceed
  • through the open doors to a safe
  • location away from the building.
  • Fire escape routes and fire doors
  • must be kept free from
  • obstructions, and are surveyed
  • regularly by Fire Wardens.

56
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
And then ?
  • Proceed directly to the correct
  • Evacuation Assembly Point for
  • your building.
  • Dont re-enter the building until
  • you are told that its safe to do so
  • by fire-fighters (though be
  • prepared for that to take some
  • time).

57
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Where are the Evacuation Assembly Points?
  • For the Chancellors Building, its
  • at the corner of the buildings car park (to
    the
  • rear of the building) farthest away from the
  • building, alongside the Simpsons Maternity
  • Hospital.
  • For the QMRI, its in front of the Chancellors
  • Building common room windows.
  • For CRIC, its into the QMRI Car Park to the
  • west of the building.
  • For SCRM, its onto the path leading west
  • towards the Old Dalkeith Road.

60
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
61
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Special arrangements for people with (e.g.)
mobility impairments
  • A plan will be tailored to the
  • individual needs of each person.
  • Fire stewards may have special
  • responsibilities.
  • Special communications exist.
  • Safe areas (Refuges) exist.
  • Consider other handicaps (e.g.
  • visual and hearing disabilities).

62
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
But this means that we will need you to tell us
if you have any special requirements (or if you
know of anyone who does, including visitors to
the building). We will treat all such information
with respect to the individuals medical
confidentiality.
63
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Fire-fighting
There are fire extinguishers all around the
building Should I grab one and try putting out
the fire?
64
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
The correct first action is not to reach for a
fire extinguisher It is to raise the alarm!
Otherwise time spent tackling a fire, and quite
possibly failing to bring it under control, will
be time that has been wasted by failing to
evacuate people to safety.
65
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
After raising the alarm and ensuring that the
evacuation has begun, maybe you can begin to
think about fire-fighting, but
66
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • ALWAYS
  • Confirm that the alarm has first been
  • raised and ensure that people are
  • beginning to evacuate.
  • Know the proper use and limitations
  • on use of each type of extinguisher
  • (its possible to make a bad situation
  • a whole lot worse for yourself as
  • well as others - by using the wrong
  • type of extinguisher).

67
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • BUT NEVER EVER take personal risks or attempt or
    continue to fight a fire
  • If your escape route might be cut off
  • by fire or smoke or
  • If the fire continues to grow in spite of
  • your efforts or
  • If there are gas cylinders or other
  • flammable or explosive items nearby.

68
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
If youre not entirely confident on any of these
points DO NOT (never ever) attempt to tackle
the fire.
Your life, and that of others, is infinitely more
important than any building or property!
69
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
All the information that you need to know about
each type of fire extinguisher is written onto
the extinguisher itself (and sometimes also
displayed on the wall where it is mounted), but
the time to learn about this stuff for the first
time is not when a fire has broken out. If you
dont already know, dont take a risk Get up,
get out, and stay out.
70
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Fire Alarm Tests
  • Alarms are tested as follows
  • Chancellors Building Every
  • Friday at 1000
  • QMRI Every Wednesday at
  • 1100
  • SCRM Every Friday at 1000

Be alert to sudden noise and automatically
closing doors.
71
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Make it your most urgent priority to
72
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Read and reread the Fire Action Notice fairly
regularly, so that you have a sound knowledge of
the arrangements, and your response to fire will
always be immediate, correct and actually quite
intuitive.
73
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
First Aid
  • There are numbers of trained
  • first aiders within these
  • buildings, and also many
  • first aid boxes.
  • Serious injuries should
  • always be referred to AE
  • in the Infirmary.

74
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
If an ambulance is needed, dial (9)999 from any
extension at a safe location, not 2222, but also
send someone to Reception to help direct
attending paramedics to the casualty.
75
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
2222 is reserved for sending update messages to
the Fire Rescue Service. For first aid
emergencies, or if someone collapses inside a
liquid nitrogen plant room when it is suspected
that oxygen levels have dangerously depleted, the
correct number to dial is (9)999.
76
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Report all accidents and incidents, and also all
near-miss occurrences, using the on-line form
available at http//www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departm
ents/health-safety/accident-reporting/reporting-fo
rm/form
77
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
78
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • Report occurrences also to
  • your Supervisor/Manager
  • (even if no actual injury was
  • caused).
  • They will investigate and take
  • action, aiming to help prevent
  • the same thing happening to
  • someone else, perhaps with
  • even greater consequences..

79
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Report buildings-related faults too (e.g. loose
carpets, blown light bulbs, leaky taps etc) to
buildings management through your line manager.

86
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
But, most importantly, each and every member of
staff, student and visitor has a role ...
87
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  1. To help safeguard your own health and safety, and
    that of others for whom you have a duty of care.
  2. But also to draw to the attention of managers
    any dangers and defects that you may see or hear
    about.

90
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • Fire and first aid notices
  • Door notices
  • HS notice-boards
  • Safety bulletins
  • Safety web site
  • Temporary signs

91
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Blue signs indicate that something is
compulsory. Failure to comply not only may put
you at risk, but means that you may be breaking
the law.
92
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Red signs draw attention to a prohibition and/or
relate to fire safety.
93
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Yellow signs indicate warnings. Failure to take
notice not only may put you at risk, but you
could be breaking the law if you fail to take the
necessary precautions.
94
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Green signs draw attention to safety guidance
including that related to include fire safety
and the location of first aid equipment.
95

98
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Five steps to Risk Assessment
  • Look for hazards
  • Decide who might be harmed,
  • and how
  • Evaluate the risks
  • Can the risk be reduced, or
  • even eliminated entirely?
  • How best can any remaining risk
  • be controlled?

99
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
  • Record your findings and
  • Review at an agreed frequency
  • (e.g. annually), and revise as
  • necessary.

Thats all that there is to risk assessment
Easy, isnt it!
100
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
But risk assessment is applied to very many
aspects of what we do here within University
buildings on the Little France campus .
101
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Chemicals and Biological (COSHH)
  • COSHH assessments must be done.
  • Consider less hazardous
  • alternatives.
  • Obtain safety data sheets.
  • Assess risks associated with
  • storage, use and disposal.
  • Use control measures as required.
  • Plan in advance for accidents.

102
HEALTH SAFETY _at_ LITTLE FRANCE INDUCTION TRAINING
Radiation
  • Justify each use.
  • Optimise design (ALARA).
  • Work within dose limits .
  • Plan for accidents.
  • Defer to your Radiation

and, used properly, they are a means not only
of ensuring that our statutory obligations are
met, and that we are all using safe systems of
work (the end product of a competent risk
assessment), but also help guide laboratory
workers towards good experimental design.
