Course provided by ASCLS.

Maintaining a safe work environment is everyone’s responsibility. Employers are required to provide laboratory safety training for professionals with a variety of titles/responsibilities (e.g., laboratory assistant, phlebotomist, laboratory tech or medical laboratory scientist, or medical laboratory technician) depending on the place of employment. In a healthcare facility, identifying potential physical, chemical, or biological hazards begins with the education and training of staff. Laboratory personnel must be trained to both identify potential hazards they may encounter while performing job-related duties, and to practice and adhere to critical procedures to prevent accidents or injuries associated with these hazards. This self-study course is designed for all professionals in the testing laboratory involved in the pre-analytical, analytical, and post analytical testing processes. Course content is well suited for all employees of the clinical laboratory who are in need of a general update and review of laboratory safety
