Lab Safety Equipment

Lab Safety
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), sets stringent laboratory safety guidelines in research labs. Protocols in best lab safety practices, operator protection and proper waste storage and disposal have set a culture of safety in academic, industrial and governmental laboratories.

Personnel working with medical waste, virulent microbes or hazardous chemicals must wear protective garb and observe application specific safety protocols to avoid detrimental exposure and accidents. Cleanroom labs often utilize lab safety products to detect and monitor hazardous fumes and compounds in the lab environment. Safety showers can be installed in cleanroom labs in the event that toxic or hazardous samples come in contact with personnel. Fume hoods protect workers from potential exposure to toxic or flammable substances and biological safety cabinets contain infectious and high-risk agents. Research labs implement standard operating procedures such as the use of a chemical hygiene plan, chemical monitoring and storage, and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) depending on the application being performed.

Storage and disposal of chemical and biohazardous materials are other aspects of lab safety. Chemical and flammable storage refrigerators and freezers maintain proper temperatures for hazardous samples. Application specific waste receptacles, especially hands-free models, are important in containing toxic refuse and medical waste in hospital, research, and academic labs. Browse through the comprehensive list of lab safety equipment and supplies listed below to determine which products best suits your lab safety requirements.
