Practical General Safety Skills in the Laboratory
Practical General SafetySkills in the Laboratory
This course is introduced to you by the International Academy of Human Resource Development (IAHRD). We are glad to tell you that our courses are especially designed for you by professionals and experts who have a long experience in the field.
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.
