Lab safety training session Thursday

The Office of Regulatory Compliance and Safety at Mississippi State is offering an interactive, hands-on training course on general laboratory safety.

"Introduction to Laboratory Safety" is a three-hour seminar for laboratory users of all experience levels. The goal of the course is to provide an introduction to the basics of laboratory safety so that laboratory users can identify and reduce/eliminate the risk of exposure to chemical and physical hazards. Topics covered in the course include proper laboratory attire, personal protective equipment (PPE), work practice controls, chemical classifications and segregation, and MSDS/SDS.

All MSU employees and students are welcome to participate in the course. A certificate of attendance will be awarded after successful completion of the course. A minimum of six attendees must be enrolled to hold the class.

Sessions will be held:

-- Thursday, May 30, 1:30-4:30 p.m., Harned 3rd Floor Conference Room

-- Wednesday, June 12, 1:30-4:30 p.m., Mitchell Memorial Library IMC Presentation Room

Additional training dates will be added throughout the summer and fall semester.
