SafetyReady Programme

Safety Ready

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

We hope that you enjoy this programme and find it useful. It is something that our clients have asked for and it makes you a more valued employee.

This programme works on any computer with Internet access running Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Netscape. Please disable your pop-up blocker while doing the training as it will prevent you from taking the tests.

You don't have to finish an entire course in one sitting. You can get in and out as often as you like, but you have a maximum of 14 days to complete the SafetyReady orientation. If you do not complete it during this time, you will need to contact your recruiter before you can be re-registered.
