Laboratory Guide to Workplace Safety 2014/15 – Released

LAB8-4-Chart-Image72dpiWithin a laboratory, there are multiple safety procedures that must be taken to ensure that a workplace is operated smoothly and efficiently. Pro-Visual Publishing, in collaboration with Science Industry Australia and Australasian Laboratory Managers Association, proudly announces its newest edition of the Laboratory Guide to Workplace Safety. This guide aims to provide beneficial safety information and awareness when working in a laboratory environment.

This year’s edition offers information on Chemical Classification and Labelling – process of identifying and evaluating detrimental chemicals that may cause harm to human health and safety. There are specific procedures available when handling certain chemicals that assist in identifying hazardous chemicals. The disposal and storage of chemicals is vital in the workplace, as it will potentially prevent toxic explosions from occurring.

Additional topics featured on this year’s guide include Sterilisation Procedures in Laboratories and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). These topics essentially outline the elimination of possible transmission of infectious agents to laboratory workers, the general public and the environment. Furthermore, personnel responsible for carrying out the sterilisation and disinfection processes must wear protective clothing. This ensures that the correct use of PPE is put into practice in a laboratory environment.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Laboratory Guide to Workplace Safety 2014/15. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
