The Academic in charge of a practical class is responsible for co-ordinating the safe evacuation of students from their practical classes in the event of an emergency alarm (consistent with their existing responsibility for safe evacuation of students from lecture theatres).
Teaching Lab Technicians cannot be guaranteed to be present during an emergency evacuation event. If present, they will assist in the evacuation of students from the practical class.
If the academic in charge leaves the practical class they will hand over responsibility to another person e.g. Lab Technician or Demonstrator
Students should be safely evacuated from the practical class by instructing them to leave by the nearest and safest emergency exits and to congregate at the nearest fire assembly point(s): R & T Blocks is FAP 12 at the back of T block
The Fire Warden acts as a point of contact for departmental staff with fire safety issues.
