Lab Safety Week : Day 3

February 14, 2024

Lab safety starts with a safe attitude.

  • Emergency showers, eye showers, fire extinguishers & blankets, proper PPE when conducting experiments and addressing spills, spill kits and other safety equipment keep the community safe and ready for emergency response.
  • Check if appropriate safety equipment and supplies are present and in good condition periodically. Replenish immediately if used.
  • Having a regular training and maintenance program for safety equipment is imperative. Do not use broken or damaged equipment – notify and schedule its service immediately.
  • Access to the eyewash, safety shower, fire extinguishers, and spill kits must be unobstructed.
  • Know the location of the nearest emergency eyewash and safety shower before starting any work in the laboratory.
