How do I use a piece of common equipment?
You can contact JC (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and he will provide you with training on the proper use of the equipment or put you in contact with someone who can train you. If you have not received training, you should not be using department owned equipment.The door to a procedure room is locked or has a keycard scanner, how do I get access?
Due to University Health and Safety (EH&S) requirements, procedure rooms containing flammable storage or radioactive materials have locks that cannot be disabled. Keycard scanners are present on microscope and ultracentrifuge rooms to prevent unauthorized used. Please submit a request thorough the Maintenance-Equipment Ticket system for a key or keycard access. Before access is granted, training in proper use of the equipment or EH&S courses on handling radioactivity or hazardous materials will be required.
I am having issues with a piece of equipment in my own laboratory, how do I get this fixed?
JC can make minor repairs to some types of equipment, otherwise he may be able to recommend an outside vendor that the department has used previously.
