Developing A More Effective Lab Safety Program

Developing a More Effective Lab Safety Program (DMELSP) is an interesting and entertaining one-day workshop confronts one of the more common excuses for not having or improving the lab safety program ... "it costs too much." This is simply not true. Excellent lab safety programs do not need to cost large amounts of money. Thirty-three simple lab safety program components will be presented and discussed to demonstrate this important theme. These are the critical components for an effective lab safety program.

Participants learn how to create a more effective lab safety program without a purchase order or requisition. You don’t want to miss this opportunity for a highly informative, worthwhile and enjoyable learning experience.

Here’s a unique opportunity to take a look at your lab safety program to see how you’re doing and how you can do it even better. The workshop participants will receive the Laboratory Safety Institute’s (LSI) lab safety program review checklist with 33 components. You will learn how to use this checklist to evaluate your program both qualitatively and quantitatively. The result is a simple, clear, low/no cost path for lab safety program development. And, with courage, you can score your program on a scale of zero to 100!

Please bring all the written materials associated with your lab safety program with you for your review and evaluation in this new and enlightening way.

DMELSP is a one-day course held 8AM - 5PM in our Natick, MA office, unless stated otherwise.
Select DMELSP courses can be attended via webinar.
