Overview

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.

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.
