Not everything we have to work on is within reach. There are times we need a little help. Sometimes ladders are chosen, other times fixed scaffolds, and still other times mobile equipment like aerial lifts (also referred to as an articulating boom/bucket lifts) and scissor lifts. Working safely with this last category will be the focus of this course. Ideal learners include employees who work on or around aerial lifts and scissor lifts.
Ammonia is an extremely useful chemical. It is used as a refrigerant, a cleaning and bleaching agent, and a household cleanser. It is also used to produce fertilizers, plastics, explosives and pharmaceuticals. It is found in water, soil, and air, and is a source of much needed nitrogen for plants and animals. There are, however, some hazards associated with ammonia. The purpose of this course is to discuss these hazards and how to protect against them.
In this course, you will review the specific requirements of Good Manufacturing Practice or GMPs, as they apply to Analytical Laboratories. It is crucial to understand the impact that GMPs have on everyday laboratory practices. Compliance with GMP requirements is essential in order to create products that are both safe and effective.
This program addresses the application of GMP principles to microbiology laboratories and discusses the general principles of GMPs and their importance in microbiology laboratories. Aspects of laboratory operations specifically required by GMPs and considered industry practice will be reviewed, including: general GMP requirements for microbiology laboratories, documents and document control, handling of raw data, and laboratory control. Coverage of general laboratory control issues will be the focus of the program and cover GMP requirements for topics, such as: handling of chemicals, documentation practices, sample handling, prevention of cross-contamination, positive and negative controls, identification tests, sterility tests, handling of media, laboratory equipment, autoclaves, and environmental monitoring. This will be an excellent overview of specific laboratory requirements.
Electrical standards do not just help you comply with the law, they keep you safe! You are already familiar with electrical terms and hazards.
