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
