Laboratory Accident Drill (March 28) 実験室事故訓練実施について(3月28日)

<日本語は後に続きます/Japanese to follow>

Dear All,

In conjunction with the fire drill on Campus, a laboratory accident drill is planned for the first time at OIST. In the laboratory accident drill, we practice how to correspond to a laboratory accident and treat an injured person, assuming a chemical accident occurred during an experiment. Although participation is voluntary, we would like to have as many people as possible to take part in. We would like to ask at least one person from each unit/section to participate.

Despite all the efforts and precautions that universities take to avoid accidents, more than 100 accidents per year have been reported since 2004 in Japan. This number counts only chemical accidents widely publicized. There were some laboratory accidents involving loss of life in the past.  Laboratory accidents are not other people’s affair. We should do prepare for an unexpected emergency.

The laboratory accident drill will take place in Lab1 B503. Please come to the venue after the fire drill. If there are many participants, we may conduct the drill twice.


Date: March 28, 2014

Time: 16:00-17:00 (after the fire drill)

Place: B503 Lab1


Best Regards,
