Welcome to the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, better known as SEAS. Even if you do not work in a lab, the following information will pertain to you in the event of an emergency or incident. Please review this document, fill out the fields at the bottom and submit the form.
- Public Safety can be reached in an emergency from any campus phone by dialing 911 or 9-911. From a non-campus phone (i.e.-cell phone), call 609-258-3333. Please stay on the line to answer important questions if possible. As a best practice, it is recommended to add 609-258-3333 to your cell phone contact list.
- Blue light phones (blue light, phone beneath) can also be used to contact Public Safety at 911.
- Amy Lewis, Director for Administration & Services oversees the SEAS safety program and serves as a liaison between departments and various campus offices. Her office is C-227 Engineering Quadrangle (EQuad). Contact Amy at 8-8688 or email@example.com for safety-related questions or concerns.
- Information on Princeton Engineering chemical hygiene officers, safety managers, chemical hygiene plans and the SEAS safety policy can be found at the following link. http://www.princeton.edu/engineering/resources/policies/guidebook/
- The department of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) is located at 262 Alexander Street. The main office number is 8-5294. Please contact EHS for any safety training related questions or safety incidents. The EHS website is also a resource of safety information. http://web.princeton.edu/sites/ehs/
- In the event of an evacuation of the EQuad or surrounding buildings, the common gathering location is opposite the EQuad on Olden Street in front of Friend Center. Please contact Amy Lewis or your department administrator to receive a copy of the SEAS Emergency Action Plan which outlines evacuation procedures in more detail.
- In the event of an emergency, the Princeton Telephone/E-mail Notification System (PTENS) will send out messages to all updated Princeton University affiliates. Keep your information current in SCORE or HR Self Service.
- In the event of a fire, do not use an extinguisher unless you have been trained. Activate the fire alarm and leave the building, proceed to the emergency assembly area. Contact Public Safety (911) if you can do so safely.
- The EQuad is equipped with fire alarms, fume hood alarms and toxic gas monitoring alarms. Fume hood alarms will be localized to a lab, toxic gas alarms will be localized to J-wing, fire alarms will be building-wide in all wings. Relocate to a safe area as necessary in the event of any of these alarms.
If you will be working in a lab, you must have lab safety training. Other training will be required for:
- Laser Use, Radiation Work
- Biohazardous Materials, Live Virus Work, Bloodborne Pathogens Research
- Respirator Use
- Animal Research
- Contact EHS at 8-5294 to complete these trainings prior to your research.
