The Mystery of Lab Safety Regulations

Wednesday, July 1, 11:15 am EDT

  • Dan Scungio, MT(ASCP), SLS, CQA(ASQ)

Does OSHA really care about gum chewing in the lab? What PPE should I be wearing during this pandemic? Does my chemical waste need to be in my line of site? Getting buy-in from staff and having them follow safety regulations is difficult, and helping them to understand why the regulations exist can help with that. This session will help you understand the mystery of those strange regulations and even teach you how to dig deep to find those answers on your own.
