"Respect is something that you really want to gain for radioactivity. It's certainly something you wouldn't want to carry out of the laboratory and expose other people to. The thing to keep in mind is that you can contain it and, if you're practicing safe techniques, you are going to have less of a chance of contaminating yourself or a piece of equipment."

This video series provides guidance and instruction on how to control risks associated with protocols and practices used in the modern biology laboratory. The series wil make laboratory personnel aware of the instrinsic hazards associated with biomedical research and provide instruction in safe techniques that will enable workers to protect themselves from these hazards. The information will introduce new staff to good laboratory practices and provide meaningful technical review in safety for the more experienced laboratory worker.
