All chemicals used in laboratory have safe handling methods as specified by chemical's label and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Laboratory hazards can be minimized by following these safety measures in handling. Always keep in mind the general guidelines while handling the chemicals: Always label all containers with chemicals. Use protective equipments for eye . NERC HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDANCE. NERC GUIDANCE ON SAFE STORAGE OF LABORATORY CHEMICALS. VERSION NUMBER: DATE OF FIRST ISSUE: September, Aim and background. The aim of this document is to provide guidance on the safe storage of chemicals in laboratories within NERC. The risks that arise from poor storage.
Get this from a library! Prudent practices in the laboratory: handling and management of chemical hazards. [National Research Council (U.S.). Committee on Prudent Practices in the Laboratory.;] -- "Prudent Practices in the Laboratory--the book that has served for decades as the standard for chemical laboratory safety practice--now features updates and new topics. Use appropriate safety equipment whenever exposure to gases, vapors or aerosols is suspected and ensure exhaust facilities are working properly. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling chemicals, before leaving the laboratory and before eating or drinking. Replace personal protective equipment as appropriate.
An instructor's duty of care for planning and designing lab activities for the science curriculum includes the responsibility for the proper storage, handling, use, and disposal of chemicals in experiments and demonstrations. The following “Top Twelve” list of safety practices from Flinn Scientific will help you improve safety in the use of laboratory chemicals.

Prudent Practices in the Laboratory --the book that has served for decades as the standard for chemical laboratory safety practice--now features updates and new topics.
This revised edition has an expanded chapter on chemical management and delves into new areas, such as nanotechnology, laboratory security, and emergency : Prudent Practices in the Laboratory: Handling and Disposal of Chemicals combines two bestsellers-Prudent Practices for Handling Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories and Prudent Practices for Disposal of Chemicals from Laboratories.
These titles have served for more than a decade as leading sources of chemical safety guidelines for the laboratory.5/5(5).
laboratory safety handbook has been prepared as a result of these extensive efforts. This handbook provides policies and guidelines for safe laboratory work practices, and it applies to all laboratories at SU. Safe handling, storage, use and disposal of the chemical waste in the laboratory require policies for the safety of users and the environment.
The handbook is intended to provide. Chemical management is a critical component of a labo- ratory safety program and includes deﬁ ned procedures for buying and handling chemicals, including adequate ventilation, appropriate use of personal protective equipment, and institutional rules and pro- cedures, especially for spills and emergencies, storing chemicals, inventory tracking of chemicals, trans- porting and shipping.
Chemical Safety,American Chemical Society, Sixteenth Street, NW, Washington, DC Henry C. Ramsey Chair,ACS Committee on Chemical Safety – Disclaimer This booklet contains information and guidelines that are believed to be reliable regarding the safe use and handling of chemicals in laboratories and student classrooms.
The purpose of the Laboratory standard is to ensure that workers in non-production laboratories are informed about the hazards of chemicals in their workplace and are protected from chemical exposures exceeding allowable levels [i.e., OSHA permissible exposure limits (PELs)] as specified in Table Z of the Air Contaminants standard (29 CFR ) and as specified in other substance-spe- cific.

When working with equipment, hazardous materials, glassware, heat, and/or chemicals, always wear face shields or safety glasses. When handling any toxic or hazardous agent, always wear the appropriate gloves. When performing laboratory experiments, you should always wear a. In any laboratory, chemicals can cause physical and health threats to workers.
This isn’t limited to education settings either and is the case in clinical and industrial settings too. Chemicals found in the lab may include cancer-causing agents (carcinogens), toxins that’ll affect the nervous system, irritants and even harmful products to. This edition of Prudent Practices in the Laboratory builds on the work provided in previous editions.
Among other changes, it has two new chapters, one on Emergency Planning and one on Laboratory Security, described above, and the discussion of EHS (environment, health, and safety) management systems has been extensively revised. Chapters 2, 3, and 10 cover administrative and organizational.
The managerial effectiveness of any health and safety program is judged on the basis of how well it prevents injuries and ill health. Chemical Safety in the Laboratory provides a proven approach to implementing and maintaining an effective chemical safety program for laboratories in hospital, industrial, and educational settings.
The Laboratory Safety Guide is a resource guide geared toward promoting safe use and disposal of hazardous materials as well as general safety and regulatory awareness. It is published by the Office of Chemical Safety and is a collection of valuable information.
