Door Safety Data Sheets are prepared by the Safety Coordinators (COSEC) and allow for the identification of the most critical dangers to which one might be exposed in a given location, as well as the instructions to follow (what must and must not be done) and people to contact in case of emergency. The data sheets are particularly useful upon arrival of rescuers, and are a valuable source of information for anyone accessing the premises (staff, visitors, technical and maintenance personnel). By updating the data sheets regularly, and including the most relevant information, you increase the chances of saving your research and equipment in the event of an emergency. A secure, simple, and friendly web tool is available to consult your unit’s data sheets, or to prepare them if you are a COSEC.
The Door Safety Data Sheets and the register of dangers are closely linked: the information in the register is originally drawn from the information provided by a COSEC when data sheets is issued. It is then supplemented by workplace health and safety specialists, supporting the EPFL policy of preserving the health and safety of everyone on the campus.
You can consult or create door safety data sheets on ISIDOR (EPFL limited access).
