Good Laboratory Practice
Laboratory Guide to Workplace Safety 2013/14 – Released
Each different type of laboratory has its own set of hazards that must be assessed before appropriate control measures can be put in place to minimise risks and ensure a safe working environment. As such, good laboratory practice will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Pro-Visual Publishing, alongside Science Industry Australia, announces its release of the newest edition of the Laboratory Guide to Workplace Safety. This guide is aimed to help achieve health and safety awareness, and contribute to the wellbeing and safe practices of all involved in a laboratory environment.
This year’s guide provides laboratory managers and technicians with advice and information on laboratory WHS. Laboratory safety begins with a safe attitude and, with a little planning, some basic rules and good housekeeping practices, many hazards can be greatly minimised. Risk assessment, WHS harmonisation rules and regulations, and housekeeping are prominent topics and relevant areas for managers and workers to scrutinize when having to identifying hazards and maintain safe work practices.
Workplace hazard identification in the laboratory sector is an ongoing process, with the responsibility shared between employers, supervisors and employees. This guide presents the importance of this ongoing process within its poster-like form and easy to read layout.
