Lab Safety Trainings

What I learned in the lab safety training will help me during this internship. The things explained in these videos teach me lab safety, explain risk groups, and over-exposure to chemicals.

  1. There's a difference between exposure and infection. You can be exposed by inhaling an infectious agent but to get an infection it has to gain entry and create a colony in either an organ, tissues, or a cell.
  2. A laboratory safety information card is posted at the entry to all labs and has information about the materials used in the lab.
  3. Double gloving is recommended.
  4. It's important to decontaminate wok surfaces routinely
  5. Signs of chemical over-exposure include nausea, skin rashes, burning eyes, and headaches.
