CAPTAINS: Herschlag and Harbury Labs - B471 & B437
Beckman B442 is a shared lab space where Biochemistry researchers perform bench chemistry activities.
- Allows researchers to be able to setup and run chemical reactions.
- Frequently used equipment in B442 include spectrophotometers and rotary evaporators. Please consult designated equipment captain Fanny Sunden or Herschlag lab designee to provide instruction on use of specialty lab equipment.
- All new users MUST receive orientation and be trained by lab RA prior to working in B442 with Chemistry Equipment to assure researchers understand local lab hazards and safety practices prior to their initial work.
ESTABLISHED LOCAL LAB RULES FOR WET CHEMISTRY ROOM INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TOO:
- Prior to setting up and running specific chemical reactions for the first time, researchers should consult with their own PI or a PI-designate in order to review the potential hazards and appropriate safety precautions.
- Researchers are to minimally consult with the PI to assure adequate precautions are being taken when working with highly reactive or particularly hazardous materials (having high acute toxicity, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity).
NOTE: Per the SU Chemical Hygiene Plan (http://chemhygieneplan.stanford.edu), PIs are to assure their researchers are provided with and follow standard operating procedures (SOPs) for safe use of hazardous chemicals. For more info on SOPs, refer to https://ehs.stanford.edu/standard-operating-procedure)
- Local restrictions for working alone (for guidance, refer to Section 5.3 of the Chemical Hygiene Plan (http://chemhygieneplan.stanford.edu)
- Required personal protective equipment File:PPE Training Guide.pdf
- Incident reporting and response procedures for injuries, spills, equipment issues, etc. please contact Marc Perez in B483. You may also find chemical spill kits in B442 and B432.
- Chemical storage and waste procedures (for guidance, refer to section 9.0 of the Chemical Hygiene Plan http://chemhygieneplan.stanford.edu)
- For lab equipment uses posing special safety hazard(s), user training shall be documented, and such documentation of training completed within the past 12 months shall be retained (per Cal/OSHA 8 CCR 3203(b)).
