Consult the Red book located in the office. Emergency protocol per machine can
be found on the wiki for each machine.
In the event of an Emergency that has resulted in injury or possible loss of
life dial 9-1-1 immediately. A phone is located in the office.
If there is a fire, and it is small, put it out and clear the smoke, even if the
fire alarm goes off. Make sure that you always have an exit in the process.
Always evacuate the building when the fire alarm sounds. Proceed to a safe
location at least 100 feet from the exit.
Report all fires to the Michigan Tech Public Safety.
If there is blood, contact facilities to clean it up. Make sure that all
contaminated items are disposed of properly (e.g. no bloody razors in the trash
unless in a labeled container)
There is a first aid kit in the office, know where it is and get familiar with
what is in it.
If you are alone after hours when there is an emergency, get to a phone as
quickly as possible and call for help. If you are working alone at night, be
sure that you have a cell phone or access to a phone and 9-1-1 and Michigan Tech
Public Safety’s phone numbers are on hand.
If in doubt, CALL FOR HELP. It is always better to be on the safe side.
