Special on COVID-19

In accordance with Company Circular 15/2020, all workers operating at the beamline must observe to the following rules:

  1. Maintain a safe distance of at least 1m and minimize contact with other persons. No masks should be worn as long as people occupy the marked work stations.

  2. Coordinate work in order to reduce contact times. Split the work into shifts or into separate days whenever possible.

  3. Always carry a surgical-type mask with you and wear it whenever a distance of at least 1m cannot be maintained.

  4. The beamline coordinator will inform on the maximum number of persons admitted on the experimental station and in ventilated rooms. Whenever more people are needed to perform an experiment, a preliminary authorization should be obtained from the group coordinators.

  5. Masks must not be shared. Used surgical-type masks must be discarded in the dedicated bins. Information on bin locations can be found here.

  6. Wash hands with soap regularly following the established rules. In addition, hand sanitizer dispensers can be found on site.

  7. The equipment shared by multiple persons has to be cleaned with disinfectants before and after each use. Whenever that is not possible, gloves will have to be worn by each researcher.

The beamline personnel is responsible for keeping the work station clean and tidy. The end-station has been equipped with a bottle of Meliseptol disinfectant. Another disinfectant (0.1% sodium hypochlorite solution) is also available and provided by SPP. These products must be used to clean and disinfect the control table, keyboard, mouse, trackball and all other equipment that are frequently used in experiments. Cleaning has to be done before starting a shift as well as when concluding it. For all the devices that are used by multiple people and that cannot be cleaned with chemical agents, gloves have to be dressed for their manipulation. It is advised to cover the keyboard with domopak to protect it by contaminations.

The SPP (Servizio Prevenzione e Protezione) can provide all workers on site with a set of 5 surgical-type masks. Additional information on COVID-19 can be found here.
