Diploma in Laboratory Safety - Level 4
Laboratory is a place that provides controlled conditions to carry our scientific or technological research and experiments. A laboratory usually uses chemicals and equipment that could pose potential injuries and in some cases death, which is why it is important to follow proper safety methods and procedures to ensure a safe working environment. This Diploma in Laboratory Safety – Level 4 has been developed exactly for that purpose and will get you into terms with all the necessary laboratory safety procedures and practices.
This diploma course will teach you the importance of laboratory safety and the various hazards that could occur in a laboratory setting. You will get to learn the standard operating procedures, personal protective equipment, protective clothing applications, working alone policy and injection, followed by professional tips and tricks on how to promote a safe working environment.
This course is a wonderful opportunity for you to understand hazard communication associated with chemical handling, shipping and any other form of exposure. This course also comprises of modules that will help you implement safe work practices for physical and safety hazard, after which the Global Harmonized System, Ghs physical hazards, OSHA report, bridging principles, decontamination and many more will be explored to further solidify your knowledge on laboratory safety practices.
Diploma in Chemical Handling - Level 4
Although some chemicals are harmless, there are some chemicals that are strong enough to pose mild or life threating injuries. Therefore, it is important for forensic scientists, laboratory technicians, chemists and other professionals working with chemicals to handle them in a proper manner, and this Diploma in Chemical Handling – Level 4 has been developed exactly for that. This course will extensively prep you up to handle chemicals in a proper manner and to avoid laboratory mishaps.
This comprehensive course will discuss about chemical handling and its importance. You will get to understand the importance of hazard communication in preventing accidents, after which the course curriculum will explore the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
Once you get into terms with GHS Physical Hazards and Pyrophrorics, this course will move onto educate you about the NEW OSHA Hazard communication standard (HCS). This course will also focus on the different types of chemical hazards, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and the department specific hazard communication. By the completion of this course, you will possess all the necessary knowledge and skills needed to handle chemicals like a pro.
The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink* has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria.
