Webinars: The Latest in Laboratory Safety: What You Need to Know to Maintain Compliance
Recorded on: Wednesday, April 29, 2015
In 2012, CLSI published an updated edition of GP17—Clinical Laboratory Safety. This presentation will discuss the major revisions of the document and how to use that information to improve laboratory safety culture. The field of laboratory safety is ever changing, and GP17 discusses topics such as engineering controls, personal protective equipment, the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Learning the latest information in the field will help the laboratory maintain regulatory safety compliance.
At the conclusion of this program, the participants will be able to:
- Understand the major changes in Clinical Laboratory Safety, 3rd Edition (CLSI document GP17-A3).
- Discuss the effects of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals on the guideline and what role it plays in 2015.
- Explain how to use the document to maintain safety regulation compliance and improve the laboratory safety culture.
