What’s in the Lab Safety Training Course?
Our Lab Safety training course is built to OSHA’s standards. This class discusses topics including hazard identification, monitoring, hygiene plan, knowing your lab, safe practices, common hazards, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA.
Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following OSHA standards for lab safety:

Why do I need lab safety training?
OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for lab safety training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
Because of this requirement, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with lab safety. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
