Research Laboratory Safety explains the most important prerequisite when working in a laboratory: Knowing the potential hazards of equipment and the chemical materials to be employed. Students learn how to assess and control risks in a research laboratory and to identify a possible danger. An approach on the hazard classes such as physical, chemical, biological and radiation hazards is given and exercises to each class prepare for exams.
Practical approach supplemented by checklists and exercises on Risk assessment, Hazard control and identification methods and many more
Short case studies/examples in each chapter, one drawn from an "obvious" field, one from a "non-obvious" field
