Release Date: 1991-06-26
Genre: Science

The work of accident prevention in the lab begins with foresight. Discerning "close calls"--near accidents--early enough prevents them from turning into full-fledged mishaps, mishaps that cost time and money, and which could result in injury. Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory is an accident prevention handbook for the professional in the lab that shows how to detect and eliminate the causes of dangerous mishaps--and virtually "hazard proof" any lab environment. In unequivocally clear and practical terms, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory, Second Edition offers detailed procedures--from precautionary labeling to simulated drills, safety inspections,and the preparation of a chemical hygiene plan--for the development of a safety-enhanced workplace. Reflecting, in part, the upgraded procedures now mandated by the OSHA Laboratory Standard in the USA, as well as the WHMIS regulations in Canada and the COSHH regulations in the United Kingdom, this newest edition offers unparalleled and up-to-date guidance on the fine points of hazard control, with new added material on managing and handling especially hazardous substances and personal protective equipment: * The 95 percent solution: the list of causes of laboratory accidents * Hazard categories: unsafe acts; unsafe conditions * Selecting and maintaining personal protective conditions * Accident handling * Classes of fuels and fires * Preventing and extinguishing fires * Toxic effects of chemicals * Recognition of and treatment for exposure * Chemical specific safety protocol * Storage of lab chemicals * Safe disposal of hazardous waste * Personal protective equipment in the laboratory * Improving hood performance * Designing safety into new or renovated laboratories A comprehensive, one-volume safety seminar, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory will provide indispensable guidance to lab supervisors and workers, teachers and students, and anyone involved in the investigation of chemical accidents and injury. In clear language that quickly details the full range of hidden--and avoidable--laboratory hazards, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory, Second Edition offers the most up-to-date, practical, and easy-to-implement lab safety regimen yet available.

In our everyday, we use chemicals for a variety of our jobs. This includes work at office work and also household work as well. Even when it comes to bathroom cleaning or polishing our kitchen tiles we are using chemicals. This is the reason that one realizes that as we come in contact with chemicals so often, we need to safely use chemicals. Also one set of chemicals need to be put to use for a particular task only and we should never take the liberty of using it for other purposes.

Laboratory Handbook for General Chemistry

Genre: Science

The LABORATORY HANDBOOK FOR GENERAL CHEMISTRY helps students perform their laboratory work more effectively, efficiently, and safely. It is not a compilation of experimental procedures, but rather, throughout three editions, it remains a "how-to" guide containing specific information about the basic equipment, techniques, and operations that are necessary for successful laboratory experiments. The importance of laboratory safety is stressed. Video demonstrations of a number of common laboratory techniques are an important feature of this Third Edition. The Handbook can be used in conjunction with CER modular experiments, to support locally written experiments, or to complement the techniques sections of commercial lab manuals.
