School of Chemistry COVID-19 Safety Procedures
The School of Chemistry's number one priority is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of its staff and students. As the lockdown eases and we begin to return to work, please make sure you familiarise yourself with the below documents and procedures designed to ensure that any risk of COVID-19 infection is minimised as much as possible.
Remember that the best way to protect yourself is to practice social distancing (keep a space of 2 metres (6.5 feet) between you and other people), wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Other sensible measures include turning your head away from people when you sneeze, using a tissue or your sleeve and disposing of tissues quickly and safely.
We realize that it is highly probable that the virus will spread despite all public health measures, and we will offer as much support as possible to any member of the college community that may contract the virus.
Should you have any particular concerns, please contact the HSE hotline on 1850 241850 for further advice.
