Join us for an insightful webinar, "The Logic Behind Leading and Lagging Lab Safety Indicators," where we delve into the critical metrics essential for maintaining a safe laboratory environment. This session will explain how proactive EH&S activities influence ultimate EH&S program outcomes, such as reported illnesses, injuries, property losses, environmental releases, regulatory compliance, and client satisfaction. We will explore key efforts, including safety training, surveillance, emergency response, hazardous waste management, and research protocol reviews.

By understanding risk assessments, policy refinement, client request responses, maintaining compliance documentation, and fostering professional relationships, participants will learn to distinguish and effectively utilize both leading and lagging indicators. These insights are vital for reducing risks and enhancing overall lab safety performance.
