Resources I will need access to (required)

Floor 6 instrumentation conditions of use:  

  • Physical access to the 6th floor facilities and access to the booking system is limited to trained and authorised users only. You will need to request access even if you had access previously.  
  • You must have read and understood the 6th floor risk assessment. 
  • You must review and understand the 6th floor floor-plan. 
  • Please consider: Is this measurement critical to your research? When do you need this data by?  
  • We encourage external users to pool several samples to reduce the number of visits to the floor 6, this could be e.g. samples from different users in your research group OR samples from different experiments collected over a period of several days.  
  • We ask all the users not to book instruments for more than 1 week in advance to assure fair access to everyone. 
  • The booking system allows for bookings of 1h upwards to 6h. In order to reduce the amount of foot traffic, we encourage users to book longer sessions less often, rather than many short sessions. Consider if you have enough time to safely carry out your experiment and clean touchpoints before and after use? 
  • If you are using more than one instrument on the 6th floor, please consider performing all your measurements during a single booking session, to reduce the number of visits to the 6th floor.  
  • Please consider whether you can conduct your experiment on floor 6 while adhering to the 6th floor risk assessment, floor plan and university/departmental guidance? 
  • Complete your risk and COSHH assessment for the activity you wish to do within 6th floor before leaving your lab space. 
  • Ensure you have everything you need to carry out your measurements and can transport them safely. This includes a clean, uncontaminated lab coat, safety glasses and USB memory stick. 
  • Go to the floor 6 at your allocated time using the B Block stairwell
