Occupational hazards and waste management


The management of laboratory waste is key to the smooth functioning of a laboratory, and key to ensure environmental protection,occupational safety and health of users. Teaching and research activities conducted in the laboratory must prioritize prevention and waste minimization, and secondly the reuse and recycling of waste produced.

Safety and hygiene standards (NSH) are instructions developed by the Ocuppational Hazards Prevention Service of the UPC in order to guide and assist Units in preparing their safe operating procedures (PdT)

Safe working procedures (PdT) are instruccions prepared by technical staff of the LAB to inquire of security measures to be taken into account in carrying out certain tasks.

Safety data sheets (FdS) are instructions provided by manufacturers of chemicals or dangerous machines in terms of safety, handling or accidents.
