Inductions and training

ANFF-Q has facilities located around Brisbane. Depending on your project and the instruments required for your research, you will need to complete different inductions.

Once you have submitted your completed initial contact form, an ANFF-Q staff member will contact you within two working days to arrange a consultation to discuss your project further and to let you know which inductions you need to complete.

Long Pocket–UQ Site Induction

To access the ANFF-Q Long Pocket facilites, you must complete a Long Pocket building induction followed by a cleanroom induction.

To book a Long Pocket building induction, please email Bradley Ryan at l2fm@aibn.uq.edu.au.

To book a Long Pocket cleanroom induction, please contact our Professional Officer Wael Al Abdulla.

Training

As long as you have submitted your completed initial contact form, you can book and attend training on the instruments required for your research before you complete your inductions. This is possible, because you will be fully supervised by ANFF-Q Professional Officers during your training sessions.

To arrange a training session, simply contact the relevant ANFF-Q Professional Officers discussed in your initial consultation. If you wish to arrange training on any additional instruments, relevant contact details can be found on the Instrument list and contacts page.

Risk Assessments

Once you have completed your training, you will need to read the relevant risk assessments before you will be given access to the instrument’s booking calendar in the ANFF-Q facility management database.

For our UQ Site, you will need to access the UQ risk assessment database: https://www.risk.admin.uq.edu.au/Signin.aspx

If you are not a UQ student or staff member, you will also need to complete an Application for UQ organisational unit staff internet access and email it to anff@uq.edu.au so that you can access the UQ risk assessment database.

In order to prove that you have read the risk assessments, email your training ANFF-Q Professional Officer a screenshot of the “Who Has Read” list page of the risk assessments showing your name in the “Who Has Read” list. Instructions for how to do this can be found in the ANFF-Q evidence of completed risk assessment pdf.
