Many people may believe that the environmental conditions and safety measures in a laboratory are no more dangerous than a regular working environment. However, significant hazards do exist. The Diploma in Laboratory Safety – Level 4 (USA Standards) is designed to introduce learners to laboratory safety procedures such as infectious agents, poisons, explosives, flammable, high temperatures and high voltage. As a result, laboratories must take significant steps to implement precaution and safety control measures.

Individuals following the course will be presented with valuable information such as standard operating procedures, using protective clothing application and personal protective equipment.

The Diploma in Laboratory Safety – Level 4 (USA Standards) offers safety procedure training to address safety and every day issues in laboratory environments. Laboratory workers can broaden their knowledge on laboratory safety and recognising emergency situations. This will prompt employees to take proper precautionary measures to protect themselves and co-workers on how to prevent illness, accidents and injuries on the job. By the completion of the course learners will be able to identify laboratory hazards, understand the chemical hygiene plan and how to act effectively in emergencies.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards 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.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
