Severe Weather Evacuation Procedure • If a Tornado WARNING or Severe Weather WARNING has been issued or a tornado has been spotted near the campus take the following action: 1. Proceed out of room and close room doors after leaving. 2. Move to the lowest level possible and to interior hallways (and away from windows and long span roofs found in cafeteria and gymnasiums.) Use the evacuation route maps located at exit door for appropriate stairways. 3. Supervisory personnel, classroom instructors, or lab technicians should make certain everyone vacates the lab room. Take note of and report anyone missing. 4. Remain in lowest level interior hallway until Public Safety gives an all clear notification via the campus PA system. Fire Emergency Evacuation Procedure If there is a fire in the laboratory: 1. Verbally alert others in the lab and the professor running the lab. 2.

Attempt to close the door behind you. 5. Proceed from hallway to building exit. 6. Activate the fire alarm pull station located at building exit. 7. Call the campus emergency number x7159 when you have reached a location sufficiently far from the fire to safely do so either by cell phone or campus phone. 8. NEVER attempt to use the building’s elevator to evacuate the building. 9. Assemble at the designated outside rally point located at the Athletic Field. Once everyone is accounted for and it is determined that a long term indoor location is desired. The ME dept. can then move to the inside rally point for this lab which is located in Student Life and Campus Center, 3rd Floor. 10. Do NOT under any circumstances leave the rally point to return to the building until you are told it is safe to do so by competent authority.

Personal Injury/ Medical Emergency Procedure • Note that a response to a personal injury is going to vary by the severity of the injury. • Minor cuts, burns and abrasions are typically handled by the injured party. A small First Aid kit is available in the lab. Follow-up with Campus Health Services. • If chemicals come in contact with your skin, rinse skin with water immediately. If chemicals come in contact with your eyes, rinse eyes following the directions on container’s label and on the emergency eye wash station. Emergency eye wash stations are located in the following labs: CC-82, SG-01, SG-132, S-225, S233, S-261, S-263 and Krueger Hall-Student Project Lab. Follow-up with Campus Health Services and/or physician. • More severe wounds or burns will require outside assistance. Contact Public Safety IMMEDIATELY. The Emergency number is x7159 if dialed from a campus phone or (414) 277-7159 from a cell phone. Give the building and room number and a description of the injury or situation that has occurred. Medical Emergency Procedure • In the event of discovering blood or bodily fluids in the lab: • DO NOT attempt to clean up the area due to the potential of blood borne pathogens. There are staff personnel in the Facilities department specially trained in containing and cleaning up blood and other bodily fluids. • Leave the area and call x7159 or (414) 277-7159 from a cell phone IMMEDIATELY and notify Public Safety of the situation and the room number. Chemical Spill Procedure (N/A soft labs) • Chemicals used in this lab are described on the chemical list. • Flammable materials are to be stored in a storage cabinet located within this lab. • If a chemical spill occurs: – Identify the spilled material, if safe to do so, by reading the label or otherwise investigating further with the lab technician. – If the spill is relatively minor, personnel who have been trained in how to handle the material can clean it up using absorbent materials in the spill kit. Contact the lab technician if in doubt. – Waste materials generated from the clean-up must be properly disposed. Contact the lab technician for disposal. – If it is a major spill and cannot be handled by lab personnel trained in how to handle the material contact Public Safety for assistance at x7159 or dial 414277-7159. Chemical Inventory System • All chemicals have been inventoried in the new electronic CisPro inventory database. • All chemicals must have a MSDS sheet in the CisPro database. • All chemicals must have a label identifying it. • New chemicals must be entered into this database by the ME Dept gatekeeper. No chemicals are allowed in soft labs. Hazard Communications (Right to Know) (N/A soft labs) • Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) are available for the hazardous materials that are present in the lab. The MSDSs provide information on the properties of the chemicals as well as toxicity, health risks, fire response and first aid measures. • The Chemical Lists are located in the Lab Management Plan located at the room’s exit and in the LMP black binders in S-264 or in the CisPro database https://cisprolive.chemswlive.com/CISPro/login_msds.asp?accessid=686. • The MSDS sheets are located in the LMP black binders in labs, S-264 , CisPro database and on the MSOE website at https://cisprolive.chemswlive.com/CISPro/login_msds.asp?accessid=686 • All chemical’s containers must be labeled properly with the contents and hazard warning Chemical Handling (N/A soft labs) • Carefully read the labels before using a chemical. The manufacturer’s or supplier’s MSDS will provide special handling information. • Be aware of the potential hazards existing in the laboratory and the appropriate safety precautions. • Know the location and proper use of emergency equipment, the procedures for responding to emergencies, and the proper methods for storage, transport and disposal of chemicals within the facility. • Label all secondary chemical containers with the appropriate identification. • Use only those chemicals for which you have the appropriate exposure controls (such as a chemical fume hood) and training. Always use adequate ventilation with chemicals. • Inspect equipment or apparatuses for damage before adding a hazardous chemical. DO NOT use damaged equipment. • Inspect personal protective apparel and equipment for integrity or proper functioning before use. Chemical Storage (N/A soft labs) • Chemicals must be properly labeled. • Explain the chemical storing system, including hazards of incompatible chemicals, lack of secondary containment, and consequences if the chemicals are not stored properly. • Flammable materials must be stored in the storage cabinets located in labs: CC-82, SB-30, SG-34, SG-36, SG-37, SG-38, SG-51, S-262, S-263 and Krueger Hall-Student Project Lab. • Used oily/dirty rags should be placed in the oily rag cans located in labs: SB-30, SG-01, SG-34, SG-36, SG-38, S-262, S263 and Krueger Hall-Student Project Lab. Chemical Disposal (N/A soft labs) • Notify the lab technician if you have a chemical you no longer need. The lab technician will arrange for proper disposal, transfer or storage. • Satellite Accumulation Areas (SAA) for unwanted material are located in labs: CC-82, SB-30, SG-01, SG-36, SG-38, S-233, S-263 and Krueger Hall-Student Project Lab. The lab technician will arrange for the transfer of unwanted material the Central Accumulation Area (CAA). • Only certain MSOE staff who have appropriate training are authorized to transport unwanted material to the CAA. • ALL batteries must be recycled. Bring dead/unusable batteries to the lab technician for collection prior to disposal. The container should be labeled “USED BATTERIES – UNIVERSAL WASTE.” Chemical Fume Hoods (only in S-233) • When using a chemical hood please note the following: – Keep all chemicals and apparatus at least six inches inside the hood (behind the sash). – Hoods are not intended for chemical storage. Chemicals should not block vents or alter airflow patterns. – Keep the hood sash at a minimum height (2 or 3 inches) when not manipulating chemicals or adjust apparatus within the hood. – When working in front of a fume hood, make sure the sash opening is appropriate to allow adequate air velocity through the face of the hood. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) • Personal protective equipment (PPE) should be selected on a task basis and checked to make sure it is in good condition prior to use. • Instructor’s determination: – Eye protection: safety glasses, goggles, face shield – Protective gloves – Protective clothing – Ear protection – Dust masks 4.0 Training Documentation • Student LMP Training Verification (sample on next slide) must be signed by students after training is completed • Completed Student Training Verification Forms due after the first lab in ME dept. office.
