Why take the Laboratory Safety Training course?
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to ensure the health and safety of all employees and anyone affected by their work, so far as is reasonably practicable, which means balancing the level of risk against the measures needed to control the risk in terms of money, time or trouble. This includes taking steps to control slip and trip risks.
The management of Health & Safety at work regulations build on the HSWA to include a duty on employers to assess risks (including Laboratory safety risks) and take action where necessary.
In addition to the general requirement of COSHH, for laboratories and large scale with biological agents there are also Schedule 3 of the regulations which may apply.
