Laboratory Safety in Research and Education Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
A lot of important scientific research and development is done in laboratories. The healthcare, pharmaceutical, and oil and gas industries, and many others, rely on lab results to create processes and products, and to save lives. However, there can be hazards to laboratory workers. This course will teach lab workers to identify common physical and chemical laboratory hazards and related safe work practices required as recommended by OSHA. The course also covers the use of personal protective equipment and standard emergency response procedures for laboratory work. This course is designed for all employees, students and volunteers operating in campus laboratories and/or research facilities. This course assists employers in meeting safety standards required by OSHA, however there may also be a site-specific training component required that must be fulfilled by an employer.
