New White Paper Details Six Steps to Investigate and Prevent Laboratory Accidents
Date:10/9/2007

NEWTON, Mass., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new, free white paper, titled "A 'Six Step' Process to Investigate and Prevent Laboratory Accidents," is now available for download at: http://www.eheinc.com/labaccidents.htm.

Laboratories are potentially dangerous work environments, and often contain a wide variety of toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive compounds. Accident prevention is imperative for any proactive health and safety program, and accidents themselves, while unfortunate, present an opportunity to improve the performance of the laboratory safety program.

This white paper details the six key components of an accident investigation and mitigation program that are necessary to provide improvements in the overall safety program and prevent future accidents. The steps the white paper discusses include:

-- Notification and Response

-- Site Investigation and Interviews

-- Root Cause Analysis

-- Report of Findings and Review

-- Implement Corrective Measures

-- Monitoring

The author, Kevin Coghlan, M.S., C.I.H., Director of EH&S, Compliance & Strategic Support at EH&E, a Newton, Mass.-based environmental engineering and consulting firm, has over 18 years of experience in assessing, evaluating, characterizing, and solving environmental problems in laboratories.

This white paper will be applicable to all those that work in laboratories, including managers, technicians, laboratory safety directors, and environmental health and safety officers.
