If substances are not properly controlled, hazards can spread and contaminate other materials, work areas and even employees themselves. With many laboratories using toxic, corrosive and carcinogenic chemicals, employees need to do all they can to prevent contamination.
This training on preventing contamination in the laboratory emphasizes the critical need to recognize potential situations that could lead contaminations and what to do to prevent contamination from happening through use of proper protocols, safety equipment, and engineering controls.
