Physics Laboratory Principles and Safety RulesIn this laboratory, located on the 1st floor of block A (A102), undergraduate courses and laboratory applications are carried out.
Laboratory entrance and exit can be made by authorized persons with a key. When you first enter the laboratory, you need to contact the responsible technician or faculty members and get permission for the work you will do.
Students cannot work alone in the laboratory; During the study, a research assistant or a faculty member should also be present.
Before working in the laboratory, get detailed information about the equipment you will use by reading the usage and safety instructions and consulting the research assistant.
Take care to use the necessary personal protective equipment (gloves, goggles, etc.). In the laboratory, always get help for difficult tasks such as lifting weights from the ground.
Note the consumables used during your work and inform the laboratory supervisor for the next experiment for the inventory management.
Determine the locations of the equipment that may harm the surrounding during the operation in a safe manner. Do not leave cables exposed or position them in a dangerous way. Especially position cutting and piercing tools away from the risk of hitting and falling.
Ensure that the area of use is cleaned after the laboratory and that waste materials are collected / stored / disposed of properly.
Please read in detail the applications stated below in terms of the Physics Laboratory.
Safety Rules1) Following the Instructions
After entering the laboratory, work will be carried out in accordance with the warnings of the laboratory technician/instructor in order not to disrupt the occupational and health safety rules.
2) Opening the Electrical Panel
Do not work with the electrical panel during laboratory use. When necessary, notify the technician/instructor in charge of the laboratory to call the authorized electrical personnel.
3) Electrical Sockets on Workbench
During the experiment, attention should be paid to the sockets on the bench for use. When unplugging the plugs from the sockets, remove them safely with one hand, not from the cable, but by holding / pressing with a non-wet hand.
4) Test Benches
Test benches should always be kept clean and tidy. No liquid or food, including water, should be kept in the capped bottle on the test benches. Electronic equipment (such as a mobile phone) that has nothing to do with the experiment / study should be removed from the test bench. Space-consuming items such as bags and coats can be suspended.
5) Test Sets
The experiment sets on the tables should only be used in the relevant lectures in the presence of a laboratory technician/research assistant. Conditions that may pose a danger in the experiment sets should be reported to the laboratory supervisor.
6) Cabinets / Drawers
The material cabinets in the laboratory can be opened with the permission of the laboratory technician/instructor, and the materials required for the experiment/study can be taken to the test benches. Cupboards and drawers must be kept closed when not in use. In this way, measures are taken against possible accidents that may occur by hitting the doors/drawers opening to the corridor.
7) Material Waste
Wastes generated during the experiment should be disposed of properly in an enclosed waste bin fitted with polythene bag.
8) Cutting and Drilling Tools
During and after the experiment, cutting and piercing tools should be properly stored. Otherwise, equipment left unsuitable may harm others or the experimenter.
