Building Access

Access to general spaces and/or offices

Most general areas in BEES are accessible by swiping your staff/student card against the card readers. Some offices are accessible by keys only.

New staff/students to BEES should see Lucy Dobson in the School Office (Room 520, D26) to request swipe access and/or keys. You will need to provide your zID at a minimum. It is a condition of access that you complete the following within two weeks: 

Course name Course number Comments
On-Line Work Health & Safety Awareness (Online) HSEAWA  OR Refresher Health & Safety Awareness – HSEREF every three years
On-Line Ergonomics (Online) HSEEMT  OR Refresher Ergonomics & Manual Tasks – HSEERF every three years

The BEES Building Induction (Face-to-face)   These are held on Wednesdays at 12.00pm - 1.00pm. Please email Lucy Dobson to be added to the next induction invitation list. 


 

 

You can also find instructions to enrol in training here. If you have already completed these courses, you do not need to redo them (except the refreshers if applicable to you).

Email Lucy Dobson after completing your training. Staff/students who do not complete the above within two weeks of starting will be given a one week notice period to complete, and after that will have their access removed.

 

Access to labs

Staff, students and visitors working in BEES labs are required to complete a range of UNSW training and inductions to get access to labs:

  • BEES Building Induction: These are held on Wednesdays at 12.00pm - 1.00pm. Please email Lucy Dobson to be added to the next induction invitation list.

  • Local Lab Induction: These are held at varying times depending on the specific lab. Refer to the List of BEES Facilities/Labs and get in touch with the contact listed for the facility/lab you want access to.

  • On-Line Training (instructions to enrol provided here)

    • Work Health & Safety Awareness – HSEAWA OR Refresher Health & Safety Awareness – HSEREF every three years

    • Ergonomics & Manual Tasks – HSEEMT OR Refresher Ergonomics & Manual Tasks – HSEERF every three years

    • Laboratory Safety Awareness – HSELSO

    • Gene Technology – HSEGTC (for access to D26 OGTR 509 & 513)
    • Introduction to Radiation – HSERD1 (required if you use radiation apparatuses or substances)
  • Additional classroom training for managers and supervisors (instructions to enrol provided here)
    • HS for Supervisors (Lab Based) – HSELST (classroom course – enrolment in this class is sufficient for lab access, with follow-up to ensure you have attended at the planned date) 

If you have already completed these courses, you do not need to redo them (except the refreshers if applicable to you).

Email Lucy Dobson after completing the inductions and training to have your lab access applied. Lab access will not be applied until you have completed the above.

Please note: volunteers and visitors working in labs must meet the same conditions that apply to staff and students i.e. they need to complete the BEES Building Induction and Local Lab Induction prior to accessing labs. They will also need to complete the training if they have a zID.

There are some additional requirements for volunteers. See Volunteer Approval Request HS010 to determine what is required for your volunteer.

In some circumstances it may be sufficient for an inducted lab user to accompany an uninducted visitor through the lab (e.g. film crew, tour of facilities); however, you must inform the lab manager ahead of time as it depends on the lab, activity, and level of risk. See HS414 Visitors to UNSW Facilities Guideline for more information.
