Safety @ AAC
James Cook University has statutory responsibilities as an employer, and in this regard is committed to ensuring its workplaces and workplace activities are safe and healthy as far as practicable for staff and others students, contractors, volunteers and visitors.
Staff, students, contractors, volunteers and visitors have statutory and University obligations to comply with instructions given for health and safety at workplaces, to use and properly maintain personal protective equipment provided by the University when and where required, and a duty of care not to act in a manner so as to cause harm to themselves, to other people or to property; to report injuries and hazards, and not to interfere with or misuse anything provided for health and safety at University workplaces.
All members of the JCU community should be aware of and comply with the procedures set out in the JCU Workplace Health and Safety Manual. Where there are specific safety requirements that apply to instrumentation and laboratory usage within the AAC it is the responsibility of the officers in charge of that area to make users aware of these and carry out necessary training and safety induction.
It is a general requirement that all staff, students, researchers & visitors to the AAC must wear closed shoes when in the Centre and that appropriate protective clothing is worn when undertaking sample preparation.
All laboratories keep a full list of hazardous materials contained therein and accompanying MSDS information. You must advise the AAC where samples being submitted for analysis may contain hazardous substances. Material Safety Data Sheets must accompany the samples where hazardous substances are present.
