Lab Safety / Lab Safety Management Certificate

Materials and Substances Tracking

Materials move in and out of labs on a daily basis. These include chemicals, biologicals, and many other substances, equipment, and supplies. The scientific process changes many of these things along the way. This is often what is described in greater detail as the life cycle. As part of sustainability efforts, we often track what goes in and what comes out in an effort to reduce consumption, waste, and carbon footprint.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe the life cycle approach and its benefit to safety and risk,
  • Explain how purchasing practices can improve and remove safety and risk,
  • Defend the benefits of recycling efforts even when the market for them is problematic,
  • List at least five negative outcomes from lab wastes.
