Fume hoods will shut down this weekend

The fume hoods in Mackenzie Chown H and F block will be shut down on Saturday.

The hoods will not be operational between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The shutdown is for annual fall repairs on the exhaust systems.

Facilities Management advises that:

  • All hood enclosures should be empty. If this is not practical, all bottles and containers in the hood must be closed tight.
  • All containers in vented cabinets under hoods should be closed. This should be normal practice.
  • Hoods that are not vented to the outside can be used (one filtered fume hood in Earth Sciences, all laminar flow hoods and all bio-containment hoods).

Direct questions or concerns to Facilities Management customer service at 905-688-5550 x3717 or facilitiesmanagement@brocku.ca.

Direct safety-related issues to Andy Prankevicius, research and academic safety officer, at 905-688-5550 x5390 or aprankevicius@brocku.ca.
