Laboratory safety, although altruistic, is not a purely voluntary function; it requires mandatory safety rules and programs and an ongoing commitment to them. Any organization, academia or industry, must be committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment for its personnel and visitors. Ensuring a safe laboratory environment and practices is the combined responsibility of laboratory personnel, and the management of an organization, though the primary responsibility lies with the individual performing the work. Following safe work practices and procedures to minimize potential exposure to chemical, biological, and radioactive hazards is the hallmark of laboratory safety. The backbone of laboratory safety involves several subjects such as training, guidelines on laboratory safety, safety equipment, emergency plans, handling spill, waste management etc 

The growing industry-wide interest in achieving a circular economy calls for a more ecologically sustainable system that in turn, could also bring economical benefits too.

This webinar will provide an overview of how to build a safe and resource efficient laboratory in research institution and in industry.
