Overview: Laboratories can be dangerous places, with a vast array of potential hazards available to cause harm. This webinar considers harm may be caused, as well as how people and organizations can be protected from that harm by the appropriate use of Control Measures arrived at through the process of Risk Assessment.

Typical hazards that will be mentioned include:
  • Fire
  • Breakage of glassware
  • Sharps
  • Spillages
  • Pressure equipment & gas cylinders
  • Extremes of heat & cold
  • Chemical hazards
  • Biological hazards
  • Radiation
  • Etc

In this webinar we will consider not only the hazards, but also some of the associated control measures and also the important role of having a meaningful Laboratory Good Practice Guide.

Fire Safety will consider the storage of substances, the use of hot equipment, naked flames, etc as well as touching on the general fire safety arrangements of the premises. Consideration will be giving to the safe use of glassware, dealing with broken and potentially contaminated glassware and other sharps. The use of pressurized gas cylinders will be discussed, as well as consideration of where these should be located, moving and handling of these cylinders. The issues of chemical and biological hazards will be discussed, including storage arrangements, labelling, dealing with spillages, etc. There will be a mention of simple aspects of biological laboratory safety. The hazards associated with radiation and with strong magnetic fields will be mentioned. The use of naked flames (such as Bunsen burners), hot surfaces and heat from exothermic reaction will be covered along with the use of very cold media, including cryogenic liquids.

Why should you attend: Delegates should attend this Webinar if they wish to develop an understanding of the risks associated with the Laboratory environment and the routes to manage these risks. The approach will be cover Laboratory Risk in general, but with consideration of some specific examples to demonstrate the points being made. The webinar will help delegates to meet their duty under Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Health Act of 1970 that requires employees to “furnish to each of employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees”.

This webinar is relevant to the general laboratory environment, including: Chemical Laboratories, Research Laboratories, Development Labs, Testing and Analytical Labs, healthcare laboratories, etc.

If you are concerned that you are not fully aware of the hazards that laboratory work presents or if you need information on how these hazards can be controlled, then this webinar is exactly what you need to help you. This includes, but is not limited to, chemical hazards. There will be a discussion on a range of other relevant hazards and on the control measures to be employed to avoid or control these hazards.

This webinar aims to guide you to the information you need to help you identify and manage the risks in the laboratory environment. The approach is based on the principles of risk assessment, but with the focus being on protecting workers by the use of proportionate controls.

Overview: OSHA requires that businesses maintain a running account of injuries and illness that occur in the workplace. The logs must be completely and accurately filled in and completed. At the end of the year, these figures must be reported to OSHA or other report collection agencies t0o determine if the rate of injuries and illnesses falls within the norm for that industry sector. Although not a recommended practice, some businesses use these figures as a measure of the success or failure of their safety programs. Over reporting injuries and illnesses or under reporting such numbers can result in problems, both internally in a company, as well as with the regulatory agency. Accurate reporting is imperative, and is a good tool to use in determining problem areas in the company's business operation.

Why should you attend: Those responsible for maintaining filling out and recording injuries and illnesses are often confused by what should and should not be included in the OSHA recordkeeping forms. Over-reporting injuries and illnesses can be as serious as under-reporting injuries and illnesses, and can even lead to uncomfortable OSHA inquiries or even inspections. It is also difficult to know how to accurately account for time lost due to injuries and illnesses, especially in the case of a part-time work force. This webinar will help clarify what should be reported as an injury or illness, as well as how to account correctly for lost work time.

Many employers are also confused by which forms should be used to initially report injuries and illness, and those that should be used for submission to OSHA or the proper reporting agency. This session will discuss these and in addition, suggestions will be offered for maintaining confidentiality of the OSHA Injury and Illness data.

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • Criteria to use in determining whether and injury or illness should be reported on the OSHA Log
  • Understand the purpose of the OSHA Injury and Illness logs and forms
  • Potential new requirements under the law
  • How to calculate lost work days?
  • Techniques to assure that the information contained in the logs remains confidential
  • How to calculate injury and illness rates for their workplace?

Who Will Benefit:
  • Safety Personnel
  • Occupational Health Personnel
  • Human Resources Administrators
  • Supervisors
  • Managers
  • Small Business Owners
