  • of
  • Isfahan Faculty of Pharmacy

Introduction to Lab Safety
  • Why is safety important ?
  • It is better to be a thousand times careful than
    once dead
  • -Old Chinese Proverb-

5
Introduction to Lab Safety
  • Safety in the Lab
  • The elimination of potential threats to student
    health and well-being.
  • The goal of every profession
  • All places have potential for accidents
  • Unexpected and usually sudden events that cause
    harm
  • Prevented with common sense
  • Emergency
  • Situation requiring immediate action to prevent
    an accumulation of harm or damage to people or
    property

6
Introduction to Lab Safety
  • Hazards and Risk Assessment
  • Hazards
  • The equipment, chemicals, and conditions that
    have a potential to cause harm
  • Heavy equipment, chemicals, animals, infectious
    agents, etc
  • Approach all laboratory settings with caution and
    respect
  • Hazards can be controlled
  • Goal of safety programs
  • Impossible to remove all hazards for the lab, so
    we look at risk
  • The probability that a hazard will cause harm
  • Can be reduced
  • Reduces probability of an accident

7
Introduction to Lab Safety
  • Hazards and Risk Assessment
  • Risk assessment
  • An attempt to estimate the potential for human
    injury or property damage from an activity
  • It is a measurement of safety
  • Safety guidelines
  • Procedures that are designed to prevent accidents
    by reducing the risk of hazards in situations
    where the hazards cannot be eliminated entirely
  • Major accidents are rare in laboratories
  • Most workers more cautious around major hazards
    than around small hazards or routine tasks
  • Major premise of risk management
  • ACCIDENTS CAN BE AVOIDED WITH CAUTION AND
    KNOWLEDGE

8
Introduction to Lab Safety
  • Who is Responsible for Workplace Safety?
  • Everyone!!!!!
  • Regulations for safe workplaces
  • Written by the Safety and personal Protection
  • Committee of the Faculty of Pharmacy
  • Provides a safe work environment
  • The right of the student to have a safe work
    environment
  • Key to a safe work environment
  • Be continuously aware of the many types of
    hazards present
  • Know how to handle them properly

9
Why do you need to know this information?
  • Everyone working with/around Hazardous materials
    has the right And the Responsibility to be aware
    of the hazards and proper safe Work procedures
    for hazardous materials used or produced in their
    work area.
  • The primary objective is for you to know how and
    where to find specific hazard information

10
Laboratory Safety is Important
  • TO PREVENT
  • adverse health effects from exposure to chemicals
  • exposure to organisms, diseases, etc. in
    laboratories
  • laboratory equipment hazards - if not maintained
    properly

11
  • CAUTION!
  • IF YOU THINK OSHA
  • IS A SMALL TOWN IN
  • JAPAN
  • YOURE IN TROUBLE!

12
Some Useful Abbreviations in Lab Safety
Terminology
  • OSHA Occupational Health and Safety
    Administration
  • Ensures worker safety
  • EPA Environmental Protection Agency
  • Protects the environment
  • DOT Department Of Transportation
  • Regulates transportation of lab materials

13
Some Useful Abbreviations in Lab Safety
Terminology
  • WHIMS Workplace Hazardous Materials Information
    System
  • Provides Information on Hazardous Materials used
    in Workplace
  • MSDS Material Safety Data Sheet
  • Technical document provided by chemical suppliers
    to describes a chemical
  • NFPA National Fire Prevention Association

14
Safe laboratory procedures and training are
needed for everyone!

LAB SAFETY COURSE OBJECTIVES
  • To show importance of written laboratory program
  • To show importance of safety equipment and
    personal protective equipment
  • To show importance of care of equipment

17
Our Main Goal
  • That you become aware of the chemical hazards in
    your work area
  • To work in the safest environment possible
  • You should receive this training
  • Time of initial assignment (full training)
  • Before using a new hazardous chemical
    (chemical-specific training, SOPs, etc only)

18
KEYS TO SUCCESS
  • INFORMATION Learn the hazards associated with
    your operation and share it with others (faculty,
    staff, students)
  • TRAINING Ensure that all know how to work
    safely with hazardous materials and equipment
    (test to verify)
  • LEADING BY EXAMPLE Model safe behavior
  • ENFORCEMENT Clearly communicate expectations
    and do not tolerate improper or unsafe behavior

19
General lab rules
  • For the chemicals you are working with, you
    should be familiar with
  • the standard operating procedure for using that
    chemical in your lab (a.k.a. the protocol)
  • the hazards associated with that chemical
  • the PPE required for using that chemical
  • storage requirements
  • waste disposal procedures
  • the procedures to be followed in the event of an
    emergency

20
General lab rules (cont.)
  • Avoid working alone in the lab
  • If you must work after hours or on weekends
  • make arrangements with others in the building to
    check in with you periodically.
  • Let someone know you are working alone, and make
    arrangements to call and check in periodically.
  • avoid conducting hazardous experiments during
    this time.
