Mitigating Risks of Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratory Environments
White coats, safety goggles, and Bunsen burners – these items may evoke memories of high school science labs for some, but for chemists and lab technicians, they are daily essentials. The realm of laboratory research involves constant exposure to hazardous chemicals and potentially dangerous elements. Unfortunately, safety lapses can occur, intensifying the risks faced by researchers. This article provides a concise overview of the common risks associated with laboratory work, along with standard methods to address and enhance safety protocols.
