Minor Injuries

If an accident has resulted in minor injuries but poses no ongoing safety risk, use the first aid kit in your laboratory to treat the injuries. Then, proceed to the NTU Medical Centre (phone: 6793 6974 / 6793 6828 ) for treatment by a doctor. The Medical Centre is open from 8:30 – 9 pm on Monday to Friday, and 9:30 – 12 pm on Saturday.

If the Medical Centre is not open, or if you need transportion to the Medical Centre, call Campus Security at 6790 5200.

After such an event, you are obliged to report the incident, so that further risk assessment and investigation can take place.

Fault Reporting Centre

To report breakdown of electrical services, water services, or other infrastructure, please call the NTU Fault Reporting Centre at 6790 4777.

International Chemical Safety Cards (ICSCs)

The ICSC system is a database of up-to-date information about chemical hazards, and appropriate safety and emergency procedures. In the event of a chemical accident, if time permits and there is no immediate danger, print out two copies of the ICSC data sheets for the chemicals involved. Pass these print-outs to the emergency responders (Emergency Response Team and/or SCDR officers) when they arrive.

The ICSC database is available here.
