Risk is inherent to the laboratory environment, and without regular assessment these risks have an increased potential to cause injury, illness and/or damage to equipment, buildings, or ecosystems. If and when these events occur open discussion and review can identify adjustments needed to safety practices, preventing future accidents and injuries.
The fourth workshop in our Safety Theory series addresses how to organize the concepts presented in previous sessions into a safety management plan for your laboratory. Join us for a discussion on best practices, implementation strategies and the necessary skills needed to effectively lead a safety management plan. Lunch will be included.
Next Dates TBD
