Laboratory Chemical Safety and Biosafety
Laboratory Chemical Safety and Biosafety are critical aspects of laboratory operations to protect the health and safety of laboratory workers and prevent environmental contamination. Laboratory chemical safety involves the proper handling, storage, and disposal of hazardous chemicals to minimize exposure to laboratory personnel and the surrounding environment. Whereas biosafety is more concerned with the safe handling of biological agents, such as microbes, viruses, and genetically modified organisms, to prevent the accidental release of these agents and potential harm to laboratory personnel and the public. Both laboratory chemical safety and biosafety require adherence to strict protocols and guidelines to ensure a safe working environment.
