Orientation to Laboratory Safety
MARCOM's interactive course on Orientation to Laboratory Safety shows both new employees and seasoned veterans the importance of safety in the laboratory... as well as reviews the OSHA regulations and good safety practices that apply to the laboratory environment.
A laboratory can be a dangerous place, and with the daily pressures to get things done, employees can be tempted to take shortcuts and ignore safety precautions. With the increasing complexity of the equipment and procedures involved in experiments, employees need an even greater knowledge of safety practices and procedures than they may have had in the past.
Areas covered in the course include OSHA regulations, GHS Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), planning safe experiments, personal protective equipment, ventilation controls, chemical storage, accidents and emergencies, waste disposal, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.
The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests... and more.
The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
