Over the past 15 years, the School of Science's Occupational Health and Safety Unit have provided laboratory safety training courses to industry.
Safety in the workplace is being promoted increasingly as a vital and important issue for us all. Laboratories are workplaces that have very specific technical and legislative safety issues associated with them. Therefore there is a need for laboratory safety specialists in any organisations that have and employ people in laboratories.
Our short courses have included one-day Safety in the Laboratory specialist programs, a Safety in School Laboratories course and three-day laboratory safety courses based on the Australian Standards Safety in Laboratories Series - AS2243 parts 1 to 10 and AS2982.
In 2015 and 2016 we are offering the following short courses:
- Safety in School Laboratories (Chemical and Laboratory Safety) (1 day) - Monday 16 November 2015
- Safety in Laboratories AS/NZS2243 and AS2982 (3 days) - Monday 8 February to Wednesday 10 February 2015
