The Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture (VCEA), in partnership with WSU Environmental Health & Safety, created a specifically designed safety course to address the most common safety practices and areas of risk lab users may experience at WSU.
The course has been taken by numerous seasoned scientists, as well as those with no lab experience. Both groups have noted they come away from the course pleasantly surprised at what they learned, and most make changes in their lab practices as a result.
VCEA strongly encourages all Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture personnel working or supporting a lab environment take this training, indifferent of their experience.
The training, already a requirement for any PACCAR lab user, provides an updated look at current lab practices in addition to three primary areas that influence risk within a lab.
- Five Focus Areas and Chemical Compatibility
- General Laboratory Safety and Hazard Communication
- Dangerous Waste Generator, Chemical Storage, Emergency Response and Planning
The safety course is free of charge.
