Contents Notes
The culture of laboratory safety -- Environmental health and safety management system -- Emergency planning -- Evaluating hazards and assessing risks in the laboratory -- Management of chemicals -- Working with chemicals -- Working with laboratory equipment -- Management of waste -- Laboratory facilities -- Laboratory security -- Safety laws and standards pertinent to laboratories. 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 planning. Developed by experts from academia and industry, with specialties in such areas as chemical sciences, pollution prevention, and laboratory safety, Prudent Practices in the Laboratory provides guidance on planning procedures for the handling, storage, and disposal of chemicals. The book offers prudent practices designed to promote safety and includes practical information on assessing hazards, managing chemicals, disposing of wastes, and more. Prudent Practices in the Laboratory will continue to serve as the leading source of chemical safety guidelines for people working with laboratory chemicals: research chemists, technicians, safety officers, educators, and students."--Publisher's description.
