Preventing Contamination in the Laboratory

Course by: Danatec Educational Services

SKU: HAZ753800


MARCOM's interactive course on Preventing Contamination in the Laboratory emphasizes the need to recognize situations that could lead to contamination, and discusses what can be done to prevent contamination from occurring. 

Handling hazardous chemicals and specimens requires a great deal of caution. If substances are not properly controlled, hazards can spread and contaminate other materials, work areas... even employees. With many laboratories using toxic, corrosive and carcinogenic chemicals, employees need to do all that they can to prevent contamination. 

Areas covered in the course include how contamination occurs, general preventative measures, engineering controls, safe work practices, personal protective equipment, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.  

The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests... and more. 

The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
