The most dangerous chemical container in the lab is frequently the waste container. Thousands of adverse events and injuries have occurred because of inappropriately managed lab wastes. Inadequate training and hazard awareness can lead to preventable employee exposures or adverse events such as waste container leak, breakage, lab fire, explosion, injury, and/or interruption of operations. Such adverse events often trigger lengthy and costly investigations into causation, preventability, and legal accountability. Learning how to identify and manage risks associated with lab waste management is the focus of this webinar.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to establish a culture of safe lab operations through safe and resource-efficient waste management.
  • How to avoid adverse safety outcomes, potential negative press, investigations and fines associated with poor waste handling practices.
  • What the top 10 current EPA waste violations are, and how to avoid them.
  • How to reduce disposal cost, increase efficiency, and improve sustainability through pro tips on waste management.
