Health and Safety

Safe working at the FCCF

At the FCCF we work hard to ensure that experimental work can be carried out in the safest way possible. We ensure that every user who enters the facility to use the equipment is trained and aware of the safety precautions relating to the lab and to their personal samples.

The staff at the FCCF have produced detailed Standard Operating Procedures and Risk Assessment documents or SOPRAs. These documents will have been sent to each user to read and complete prior to their training on the instruments. The SOPRA documents contain all relevant health and safety information to allow you to use each of the user operated instruments safely and accurately.

The SOPRAs can be accessed by Newcastle University staff via the links below
