Orientation to Laboratory Safety shows both new employees and seasoned veterans the importance of safety in the laboratory… as well as reviews the OSHA regulations and good safety practices that apply to the laboratory environment. A laboratory can be a dangerous place, and with the daily pressures to get things done, employees can be tempted to take shortcuts and ignore safety precautions. With the increasing complexity of the equipment and procedures involved in experiments, employees need an even greater knowledge of safety practices and procedures than they may have had in the past.
Topics covered in this program:
Include OSHA regulations, GHS Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), planning safe experiments, personal protective equipment, ventilation controls, chemical storage, accidents and emergencies, waste disposal, and more.
