Potential hazard ratings

Each laboratory has been assigned a potential hazard rating result in Low, Medium, High or X High rating

LOW Indicates lab activities are associated with the use of computers only Standard undergraduate access hours: 24/7 access is granted at discretion of the School
MEDIUM Indicates lab activities are associated with general low voltage (60VDC / 40VAC max) experiments / projects / equipment consisting of an oscilloscope, DC power supply, function generator, soldering station and/or assorted hand tools and/or PC. Standard undergraduate access hours: access is granted from 08:00 to 22:00 (7 Days) at the discretion of the School
HIGH Indicates activities may be associated with all of the above and/or hi-voltage (from low voltage to 350VDC / 240VAC max) experiments / projects / presence of dangerous moving or rotating parts. Standard undergraduate access hours: access is granted from 08:00 to 18:00 (5 Days) at the discretion of the School.  (Supervision is required when working with hi-voltages)
X-HIGH Indicates activities may be associated with all of the above and/or experiments / projects / involving extra hi-voltage (greater than hi-voltage). Standard undergraduate access hours: only granted with 100% supervision and at the discretion of the School

Potential hazard ratings are used by the School to assess supervisory requirements and the number of hours that access may be granted.  A low rating does not, in any way, imply the lab has a risk free environment in which to work.

Information regarding the general risk assessment and the potential hazard rating will appear on the door to each lab.
