2/12/2016 1:20 PM The following is a description of the job of the Preparation Person for the 1500 Lab. In my experience, the most important thing that needs to happen for the Prep person to have a successful semester, is to have constant communication with the Lab coordinator. Therefore, most communication will be done using Dr Moser’s Web Site, e-mails, phone calls and visits. As one of my Prep People, you will be expected to provide me with your current e-mail address and your current cell and home phone number. If you are a member of the Chemistry department, I want you to provide your current chemistry department office number and your supervisor within the department. You will be expected to check your e-mail daily and respond to all e-mails from your coordinator and instructors within 24 hours. The central focus of this position is stocking of the experiment carts for 1500 laboratory course and keeping the supply and chemical lists on Dr Moser’s web site accurate. These supplies and chemicals list will be maintained by the Purchasing Coordinator, but it is your responsibility to have the up to date at least 4 weeks ahead of when the items are needed by you. The syllabus for the lab will be found in the Student Information section for Laboratory Classes Taught in Dr Moser’s Web site. It will indicate the experiments, the order and the week that they will be done in class. One cart will need to be stocked. Each week, o At the beginning of the week, last week’s experiments chemicals, waste chemicals and equipment are removed from the cart and hood. The reusable chemicals and equipment are put back into the Prep Room. The waste chemical bottles for each experiment are disposed of as Described in under Stockroom, 1500 lab Chemical/equipment Preparation for Experiments. Check ahead two weeks to verify that the chemicals & supplies needed, are in the Prep Room. o At the end of the week, the supplies and chemicals needed for next week are placed on the cart. If some supplies are missing, place an order through the Stock Room. The supplies and chemicals for each experiment are listed under Stockroom, 1500 lab Chemical/equipment Preparation for Experiments. Two determine how much of each reagent, supply or waste container is needed, use the following considerations: About 125 students will be in class. Working in partners, there will be about 70 experiments run. Read each experiment, determine how much of each reagent or supply is needed for one experiment, then multiply that quantity by 2.5 (2.5 * # of experiments run). o Waste chemicals are placed on the West wall of room 6047. The Waste Coordinator will handle them from here. o Clean, empty chemical containers are placed in the Waste chemical area in room 6047. The Waste Coordinator will handle them from here. They are not to be put into the Waste Glass Crock. o Verify that the needed chemicals and supplies are on the lists on Dr Moser’s web site. This list will be maintained by the Purchasing Coordinator. Please note that it will take the Purchasing Coordinator 4-6 weeks to get your items. See the list of chemicals and supplies needed under Stockroom, 1500 lab Chemical/equipment Preparation for Experiments. Keep the acid and chemical cabinets clean and neat. Procedural issues If you find that updates to the web site are needed, Prep Room items need to be addressed or any other issue, please contact your lab coordinator.
