In a laboratory, we might be exposed to hazards ranging from chemicals to radiation to physical stress. While lab safety is governed by several regulations, still we need to know some things we can do to ensure our own safety..
Biological Safety ensures the safe use of recombinant DNA (rDNA), pathogenic microorganisms and other infectious agents and toxins in research. We should not only have to comply with Govt. regulations, but also to adhere to the highest ethical standards when it comes to protecting ourselves and the environment from potential exposure to hazards.
We should always give utmost priority to personal safety and must wear certain basic items like Goggles and Face Shield., Plastic Vinyl Booties, Disposable Coveralls and Apron, Disposable Vinyl Gloves or Heavy Neoprene Gloves. etc.
