What kind of SOPs does the community need/want? I'll be writing them and posting here and to my blog

Hey guys just wondering what kind of SOPs the community would like to read, learn, and use. I’ll be writing them and keeping them updated with anything I may forget or overlook.

If it’s not against site rules, I’m pretty sure it’s not, care to post a link?

I found your grm tek crc post very informative!

I’m lazy and didn’t click your icon lol, nvm, but wouldn’t hurt.

Those are some great suggestions, they will definitely take me a while to properly put together though. Was hoping for some more beginner friendly SOPs to write, but I like a challenge!

I second the safety SOPs like when there’s a catastrophic failure or large spill etc. most places don’t have safety refs installed

I was actually thinking about an evacuation sop in case of emergency.

My previous company had one, not related to this field, but a good plan anyways.

Each group had an exit route, then we all met in designated areas, head counts, etc.

I’m very interested in this!

It’s generally called a life safety plan and based on sensible egress paths from all areas of the building. It usually also includes location of safety equipment and solvents that exist

Spill control… my first thought is to have a good volume of adsorbant media on hand- baking soda for one has saved me several times in the past when having to deal with oil fires- I would imagine that it would be useful in containing solvents

Fire hazard reduction SOP coming later today guys, just got my partner grammar checking it. As always open to suggestions for making an even better SOP for community use. Gonna start working on an emergency preparation SOP and leak/spill SOP as well. Open-Source knowledge for the win!
