Title Health and safety in the laboratory and field
Description
  • <p>This course is designed to introduce you to the concepts of health and safety within a science laboratory or in the field. There are a number of legal requirements that must be adhered to before carrying out work in a laboratory. One of these is the necessity to carry out risk assessments on the chemical and biological agents that are to be used as part of your practical work activities. As part of this process you may be required to think about minimising exposure of yourself and colleagues to these chemical and biological agents. The following background and information is intended to make you more aware of health and safety aspects of your laboratory and field-based research work.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of postgraduate study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/science?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Science</a></span>.</p>

  • Health, safety and risk assessment are of paramount importance both in the laboratory and the field. This free course, Health and safety in the laboratory and field, will help make you more aware of the hazards and risks involved wherever you undertake your research, as well as giving you an overview of the legal requirements attached to this work. The course discusses issues involved in the handling of chemical and biological agents, basic safety procedures and common field-work hazards. <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/health-and-safety-the-laboratory-and-field/content-section-0" /> First published on Fri, 27 May 2011 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/health-and-safety-the-laboratory-and-field/content-section-0">Health and safety in the laboratory and field</a>.
