Please label all compressed gas tanks in LKSKI receiving area
A section of the loading dock/receiving area of the LKSKI is devoted to storing the compressed gases that many groups use in their work. An audit of the area was undertaken recently that highlighted a large number of stored tanks that have been stored, unused, for long periods of time. We are asking all group's to:
Clearly label all cylinders with the group’s name
Only store the minimum amount that you require for your work
If the cylinder is not used and is not going to be used in the near future, please arrange for the company that rented you the cylinder to collect it
Moving forward, there will be monthly checks on the storage area and any cylinder found without a label identifying the group will be returned to the supplier.
Change in Chemical Waste Disposal Guidelines
We have updated our chemical waste disposal guidelines. To view the updated document, please click here. Hazardous waste stickers are available in Room 545. Please remember to stick them on the waste bottle as soon as you start collecting the waste. If you have any questions/concerns, please email the Biosafety Officer, Neha Chauhan at Neha.Chauhan@unityhealth.to
We are excited to announce that, based on your feedback, we have made some security enhancements to the Research Facility Business Management System (RFBMS).
These new changes will make your experience with us easier, faster and more secure!
