Effective lab safety programs need to be error-free. Avoiding mistakes is critical. And yet, we see them repeated over and over again in labs throughout the world. This session will highlight major lab safety program errors to avoid. Remarkably, the biggest error is made by 95 out of every 100 labs! And, the best part will be that correcting most of these mistakes and errors will not require a purchase order or requisition.
Compliance is achieved through understanding the regulations and a comprehensive waste management system. It begins with assuming responsibility and ends with obeying the golden rules of waste disposal. This presentation will cover regulations, hazard determination, generators, status, avoiding waste formation, purchasing, inventory, obeying the law, selecting a vendor, and household hazardous waste.
This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of all potential hazards faced in laboratory settings and cover the major OSHA requirements. The program will open with a discussion of the different types of hazards – chemical, biological and physical. A focus on specific OSHA standards applicable to most laboratories will follow, and the final section will discuss various examples of hazard types common to lab environments.
