Health and Safety Webinars
Exporting safety to the USA
Over the last two years, I have delivered many Webinars to delegates in the USA.
This week, I am continuing that line of work with a new version of my Laboratory Safety Webinar. This is a good introduction to safety matters for anyone with responsibilities for the running and operation of almost any type of laboratory. Further to this, we can support your operation with our retained service (if required).
Laboratory Safety Webinar Overview:
Laboratories can be dangerous places, with a vast array of potential hazards available to cause harm. This webinar considers harm may be caused, as well as how people and organisations can be protected from that harm by the appropriate use of Control Measures arrived at through the process of Risk Assessment.
Typical hazards that will be mentioned include:
- Breakage of glassware
- Pressure equipment & gas cylinders
- Extremes of heat & cold
- Chemical hazards
- Biological hazards
In this Webinar we will consider not only the hazards, but also some of the associated control measures and also the important role of having a meaningful Laboratory Good Practice Guide.
