Risk Assessment in Chemical Industry course re-design - checklists
In the later part of 2006 Niels was involved in re-design of a course on risk assessment in chemical industry at the Technical University of Denmark. As part of the re-design process a number of checklist templates was created with the course header. These template was intended to be used in the first run of the re-designed course in the spring of 2007. Unfortunately a black out while driving home late in January prevented that from happening.
Now, at the first step in releasing information about the re-designed course, we are now providing access to the templates in our resources section. The templates were created using OpenOffice, and works without problems in LibreOffice. Please let us know if you want the templates in a different format.
Risk Assessment of chemicals and experimental setups in laboratories
Here are to forms based on forms developed at DTU Kemiteknik som years ago. At the time of development the whole system was paper based. In these days of co-operative editing of a share file on e.g. Google Drive it would make more sense to have an electronic system, which the manager of the system prohibiting editing a given sheet after approval. I would suggest one Google Sheet per person. That way one can easily verify, that a given person have done the required risk assessment of a given chemical before using it.
One form called "Chemical APV" is for risk assessment of a given chemical for use by a given person in a given research group. The other form "Experimental Setup Safety Assessment" is for risk assessment of a given experimental setup for use in a given research group by anyone in the research group, who have been properly trained on the experimental setup.
