The glass containers and instruments used in laboratories are potentially hazardous. This online training video teaches lab workers how to safely handle glassware.

This course shows the importance of using gloves, goggles, and in some instances a face mask while working in a lab. Protective gloves should be cut resistant, and insulated gloves should be used when handling hot or extremely cold glass. Viewers learn most glassware-related accidents happen during cleanup and are shown how to prevent them. Safe practices are given and include avoiding the use of chromic acid and other caustic agents for cleaning. Glassware should be properly stored by keeping it away from shelf edges and padding instruments kept in drawers.

This course explains why glassware should only be used for what it was designed to do, and illustrates what to do if an accident occurs. Create a safer workplace by learning and following the precautions shown in this training course for using glassware in the laboratory.

This course has been updated to include GHS container labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for GHS compliance.
