Areas Mech Grants Access For
The Department of Mechanical Engineering issues electronic access, keys, and alarm codes for the following spaces:
- CEME (Mech areas);
- Rusty Hut (Mech areas);
- KAIS (Mech areas);
- High Head Lab;
- ICICS Mech Undergrad Teaching Lab wing.
- ICICS spaces occupied by Mech can also be requested through this form.
Keys are only issued for spaces that do not have electronic access.
Many buildings that have a Mech presence manage their access independently, including CERC, PPC, and AMPEL. Please contact those facilities directly for assistance.
Safety Orientation Requirements for Access
Whether as a student or as an employee, safety comes first. There are a minimum of five safety training requirements for access to any Mech space – including offices.
- Preventing and Addressing Workplace Bullying & Harassment Training
- New Worker Safety Orientation Training
- Engineering Student Team members who are not employees of the University and who have completed the APSC Student Team Safety Training course are exempt from this requirement for RH 120 access
- Floor Warden Training Course – in Mech, everyone is responsible for knowing what to do in the event of a fire
- One of:
- Chemical Safety Training (for faculty, staff, visiting researchers, and graduate students who work with chemicals)
- Introduction to Laboratory Safety (for undergraduate students who will work under constant direct supervision of a senior lab member)
- WHMIS Training (for those who do not fall into the above categories, including office workers)
- A Safety Orientation Checklist* for each space you are requesting access to, including office spaces. This training should be conducted by your supervisor or a designated trainer for the space. *Please note that this form will be updated very soon to better reflect the differing safety risks of lab spaces and office spaces. Please mark “N/A” (non-applicable) as required in the interim.
Higher risk spaces may have additional safety requirements, including but not limited to:
- LASER Safety Training
- Radiation and X-Ray Safety Training
- Transportation of Dangerous Goods Training
- Hazardous waste or chemical waste training
- Respirator fit testing
- Training on equipment or procedures specific to your lab
