Students, who want to work in the laboratories at FIB14, are obliged to attend a Course in Laboratory Safety , before they are allowed to work in the laboratories. These courses are given at semester start.
Everyone working in the laboratories must fill out a Work Place Permit. The Work Place Permit must be signed by the student’s supervisor and the student must bring a hard copy version to the lab in order to commence working in the labs. Course organizers and supervisors must ensure that workplace safety instructions (www.kemibrug.dk) and Work Place Permits are in place for the students.
For students AAU has drawn a collective accident insurance but encourages all students to draw their own personal insurance as the AAU accident insurance does not cover liability of damages.
