Many health and safety issues in workplace laboratories including, but not limited to, necessary programs, procedures, training, ventilation, and PPE, are governed by specific OSHA and EPA regulations.

There is a lot of confusion in industry about what regulations apply because there are different rules for laboratories based on their operations; productions labs and research and development (R&D) labs are considered very different under the OSHA standard. Even the regulatory definitions of production and R&D labs can be confusing.

Attend this webinar to learn about the following concepts and how to use them to ensure compliance:

  • Regulatory requirements for different types of laboratory operations
  • Resource needs for laboratory safety programs
  • Training needs for laboratory staff
  • Typical safety pitfalls in laboratory operations

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today. At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
