Description:MARCOM's "Preventing Contamination
in the Laboratory" Video Training Program emphasizes the need
to recognize situations that could led to contamination, and discusses
what can be done to prevent contamination from occurring. Handling hazardous
chemicals and specimens requires a great deal of caution. If substances
are not properly controlled, hazards can spread and contaminate other
materials, work area... even employees themselves. With many laboratories
using toxic, corrosive and carcinogenic chemicals, employees need to do
all they can to prevent contamination.
Areas covered in the program include how contamination
occurs, general preventative measures, engineering controls, safe work
practices, personal protective equipment, and more. The Video Program
comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling &
Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
This Video Training Program is one of 12 in the Elements of
Safety Laboratory Safety Training Series.
