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. This lab safety orientation program 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 laboratory environments. Updated for 2014 with the new GHS Standard.

Topics covered also include:

  • OSHA regulations.
  • Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs).
  • Planning safe experiments.
  • Personal protective equipment.
  • Ventilation controls.
  • Chemical storage.
  • Accidents, emergencies, and waste disposal.
