Safety First

In case of an accident

For any accident in the lab:

  • Remain calm!
  • Assess the situation
    • Use common sense
    • Protect yourself, then other people, then equipment/infrastructures
  • Call for help if needed
  • Seek medical attention if needed
  • Contact safety personnel if needed

If the accident involves doctor visit OR hospitalization:

  • Notify IESL and FORTH Safety Officers AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
    • IESL Officer’s cell phone is posted on the door of every IESL lab
    • If it is late at night or weekend, DO NOT WAIT until next morning or Monday. Call IMMEDIATELY.
    • Keep and submit to FORTH Personnel Dpt. AS SOON AS POSSIBLE any documents regarding doctor visit or hospitalization (entry and exit documents, doctor’s opinion(s), any other document)
    • Keep in mind that FORTH must declare serious accidents to authorities within 24 hours
