SMRL houses a variety of heavy and light equipment, such as forklifts, an overhead crane and SATEC frames. For the safety of the users, the use of personal protection equipment and the knowledge of safety rules are strictly enforced!
General Safety Rules
Personal Protection Equipments
The forklift and overhead crane must be used by people who were submitted and passed the training course.
IN CASE OF FIRE:
OUT OF HOURS WORKING
Working when technicians are not around involves some risks. Therefore, no construction of testing rigs and other types of testing are allowed to be carried outside normal office hour unless the user has a written permission from the SMRL Director. Regular office hours goes from 8.00 am to 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday. Furthermore, all experiments left running unattended such as fatigue test, must have instructions clearly displayed, including how to shut down the experiment safely in case of emergency, contact number for the person who is conducting the experiment and contact number of the supervisor.
