Every employee has a right to work in a safe and healthy environment – that's where Lab Support steps in. Before an employee is placed on an assignment, he or she is required to demonstrate safety competency through the Lab Support SafetyReady© programme.
Each Lab Support employee receives an orientation on the fundamentals of safety which covers general safety, injury and illness prevention, hazard communication, and injury management procedures. Depending on the assignment, employees may also receive specialised training that's focused on one or more of the following:
- Laboratory Safety
- Chemical Hygiene
- Blood-borne Pathogens and Tuberculosis
- Working around Ionizing Radiation, High Pressure, Pathogens, and other atypical operations
