Safety Instruction's "Orientation to Laboratory Safety" Videotape Training Program shows both new employees and "seasoned veterans" the importance of safety in the laboratory as well as reviews the OSHA regulations and good safety practices that apply to laboratory environments. A laboratory can be a dangerous place, and with the daily pressures to get things done employees can be tempted to take shortcuts and ignore safety precautions. And with the increasing complexity of the equipment and procedures involved in experiments, employees need an even greater knowledge of safety practices and procedures than they may have had in the past.
Emphasizes how to properly use laboratory hoods and how to test them to ensure correct functioning... as well as discusses how hoods can protect an experiment, the facility, and most importantly, the employee.
