Multimedia Laboratory Safety Training for Requirements of OSHA and EPA
provides various multimedia resources that can be used to learn and
possibly train others about laboratory safety based on OSHA and EPA
regulations. Through interaction with a personal computer with full
motion video and CD-ROM multimedia, one can learn about material safety
sheets, lists, labels, chemical hazards, dangers of exposure, and strategies
for recognizing and controlling chemical hazards. These resources were
designed to meet the training requirements of the OSHA Hazard Communication
standard (29 CFR 1910.1200). The Laboratory Safety Training Program
is divided into two units: (1) Working with Hazardous Chemicals and
(2) Minimizing Exposure to Chemicals. Although each video and CD-ROM
has to be purchased all are available for a free 10-day evaluation.

Laboratory Safety- Safety in the Research Laboratory
This is a very useful
site that provides various resource tools that one can use if they are
compiling safety regulations and/or rules for a chemical laboratory.
The HHMI laboratory safety program provides a range of instructional
and resource materials to help researchers know how to incorporate the
fundamental good rules of safety into their daily work routine. This
is a great site for someone setting up a chemistry laboratory. This
company provides regulations based upon OSHA regulations.
