Safety is essential regardless of what industry you’re in, but it’s even more important in laboratory settings. Following proper laboratory procedures allows you to ensure that your testing is reliable and your lab is a safe environment for your technicians and employees.
Unfortunately, there are still a number of misconceptions out there about lab procedures and safety policies. Understanding the reality of laboratory procedures as well as the myths that are out there can help you navigate your lab’s procedures more effectively.
Regardless of what specific research is being conducted in your lab, safety is essential. Much like the heavy machinery operator needs to know his front loader will work properly, so too is it critically important to ensure your laboratory technicians will be safe and lab processes completed correctly.
One important part of this equation is the safety inspection. By conducting your own regular safety inspections of your rotor and taking steps to ensure safe operation, you can greatly minimize risk in your lab while simultaneously boosting function and efficiency.
