Course Overview

Work in a laboratory exposes a person to risk of injury and illness from hazardous materials and equipment. Regulations and guidelines, however well conceived, are not sufficient to achieve safe laboratory practice. It is the skill, knowledge and basic common sense of the individual laboratory worker that is crucial to a safety program.

Laboratory Safety course designed to review the fundamentals of lab safety and assist scientists, chemists and other personnel working in the laboratory in the development or improvement of their lab safety program. Participants discuss important laboratory safety problems and find solutions for many of them. The course emphasizes the need to make health, safety, and the environment an integral and important part of science education, work, and life.
