etc., not in use) is sealed off from the lab whenever possible.
- Check that mercury gauges and diffusion pumps are fitted with receptacles
to collect spills in the event of damage to equipment.
- Check that Evacuated or pressurized vessels are suitably shielded
to protect personnel from explosions (or implosions).
- Check that users of gas traps have acquainted themselves with the
NOTE: VACUUM SYSTEM HAZARD
Oxygen from the atmosphere will readily collect in a vessel
at liquid Nitrogen temperatures. A dangerous situation in vacuum systems
occurs when the system is open to the atmosphere while liquid Nitrogen is
still surrounding a trap. Oxygen collects in the trap. If the system is
then closed, and the nitrogen is either removed, or allowed to evaporate
away naturally, the liquid oxygen in the trap evaporates, and fills the
system with oxygen gas at a possible high pressure. This can result in the
explosion of the system, the blowing out of stop cocks, or the explosion
of the backing pump if this oxygen is pumped through the oil on the resumption
Somewhat the same situation has occurred during the use of
other gases which will condense at liquid Nitrogen temperatures, such as
argon, methane, etc.; pumping oxygen through conventional pump oils can
result in a violent explosion. Special pump oil is available for this process.
In transferring liquid nitrogen through copper pipes, oxygen
may condense on the 50-litre storage dewars for liquid Nitrogen, accumulate
appreciable oxygen in a few days; dewars being moved around the building
should be chained to the hoist to prevent breakage.
- Check that dewar systems are protected by safety pressure releases.
- Check that glass dewars are screened as far as possible to reduce
risk of mechanical damage, and to protect against the hazards of implosion
- Check that a pair of thermally insulated gloves and safety goggles
are available when cryogenic liquids are being transferred.
- Check that users of cryogenic liquids have familiarized themselves
with the information given on evacuated and pressurized equipment.
TRIPPING AND SLIPPING HAZARDS
Wires and water hoses must not be laid across the floor in
places where they are likely to cause someone to trip or pull the cable
or hose out of place.

WHMIS (WORKPLACE HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
This brief summary does not replace the one-time compulsory
training session "Introduction to WHMIS in Zoology" which is offered
each year in September. A Supplement (Revised September 1995) which is intended
to help bridge the gap between attending the training session and using
WHMIS in the workplace available from the Zoology WHMIS Coordinator, Harold

Coordinator & Chemical Safety Officer: Donna Ashick (2-5909), Department
of Health, Safety & Environment
STATEMENT OF ZOOLOGY WHMIS AND CHEMICAL SAFETY OBJECTIVES
It is the law in Canada that every person working with hazardous
materials be provided with information through WHMIS labels, Material Safety
Data Sheets and worker education. It is the objective of the Department
of Zoology that all Faculty, Staff, Graduate Students and Undergraduates
attend on a one-time basis the instructional session "Introduction
to WHMIS in Zoology", that each individual be provided with sufficient
resources to develop a working knowledge of WHMIS, that the working environment
in the Department encourages and supports such acquisition of WHMIS knowledge
and ability and that the Department assess worker WHMIS knowledge and ability
by means of the Zoology WHMIS Coordinators and Safety Committee inspection
- A current chemical inventory should be posted in every lab and workshop.
UBC POLICY ON CHEMICAL SAFETY EDUCATION (PARAPHRASE)
It is UBC policy that every person who works with hazardous
materials such as in the laboratory is strongly encouraged to take the Chemical
Safety Long Course (with practical session) or Short Course (without practical
session) offered by the Department of Health, Safety and Environment. (These
courses are offered five times a year; the next is in January 1996.)
HOW TO DEVELOP A WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF WHMIS
Once you have attended the one-time compulsory training session
"Introduction to WHMIS in Zoology" (which is usually given in
September each year) and read the Supplement to it, the only way to obtain
a working knowledge of the System is to read Laboratory Supply House Labels
(especially on new chemicals from Canadian suppliers), to practice interpreting
MSDSs and to learn to make Workplace Labels as needed.
The objective of the Zoology WHMIS Program is to enable all Faculty, Staff
and Students who work in a lab or any other place in the Department where
hazardous materials occur to assess risks associated with those materials.
All people who work in Zoology should be able to answer general questions
from WCB Inspectors about the MSDSs and Label that comprise the System as
well as specific questions about materials on site in the workplace, their
associated hazardous properties, precautions and special information to
tell a First Aid Attendant if necessary.
THE WHMIS LABORATORY SUPPLY HOUSE LABEL, VERY BRIEFLY
All chemicals in original Laboratory Supply House containers
including ones from U.S. Suppliers must have WHMIS labels complete with
the following five items:
- Product Identifier (i.e. the name of the chemical)
- Reference to the MSDS
- Risk Phrases
- Precautionary Measures
- First Aid Measures
The Workplace label is a simplified form of the Laboratory
Supply House Label.
WHERE ARE THE MSDSs IN BIOSCIENCES?
By law, a manufacturer or supplier of any chemical or material
used in the workplace must provide a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
These are usually collected by the Department and made available in the
following locations in BioSciences:
- Hard Copy File -- All Suppliers: Room 2001.
- Hard Copy File -- Fisher Scientific: in hall across from Stores, Room
- CD-ROMs: beside Room 3538A. This includes the entire Sigma/Aldrich
set. For a print-out of any of these MSDSs and many more call HS&E
If you cannot locate the MSDS you need in BioSciences, call
the Zoology or UBC WHMIS Coordinators. It is a good idea to have a copy
of the MSDS on site for the more hazardous chemicals in your inventory.
CHEMICAL SAFETY PART 2 -- STORAGE
GENERAL STORAGE AND LABELLING OF
- Do not permit shelves used to store chemicals to become overcrowded.
Ensure that there is a ladder or a kick stool available to reach shelving
- Replace any chemical container lids that are not intact.
- Please ensure that there are no unlabelled containers and no overwritten
or "double" labels.
- Please ensure that all Laboratory Supply House and Workplace Labels
meet WHMIS standards (see section above).
- The UBC Fire Code prohibits the storage of more than 20 litres of
Flammable Liquids/Solvents in the open lab/workplace. The open lab/workplace
