Safety in the laboratories

All teachers of courses in teaching laboratories are obliged to inform students about the risks inherent to safety in laboratories, both for infrastructures and for the scientific instrumentation and its operation, including the power outlets, high pressure or toxic fluids and gases.

The Laboratory Safety Handbook has been prepared to be distributed to the students or to be viewed online on the website of the department (attached to this page - in italian only). The Handbook must be signed by students for inspection.

In particular, the first rule established by common sense and therefore by law is that the minimum number of people present in the laboratory is two. It is absolutely forbidden to stay in the laboratory alone.

This rule does not apply to computer rooms (classrooms with computers for laboratory courses).


Health & Safety

Together with the university's Health & Safety Service, the Department evaluates health hazards and prepares emergency plans. Everyone frequenting the various sites of the Department should be familiar with the evacuation maps, with the possible presence of specific hazards, with how to call the emergency services, and with who to contact for on-site emergency management.

In an emergency:

Keep calm and use any university telephone to dial extension number 2222 (always active 24/7), or call 040-558-2222 from your cell phone: the emergency manager on call will contact the appropriate emergency response teams and safety experts.

Direct calls to the following public emergency numbers should be limited to life-threatening events:
