Lab employees who work with chemicals, biohazards or radioactive materials must be familiar with working inside hoods. These sophisticated pieces of safety equipment ensure hazardous fumes, particulates, mists and aerosols do not escape into the breathing space. This Video On Demand course explains how hoods work, what kind of tests need to be conducted periodically, and familiarizes viewers with the meaning of terms such as face velocity and cross draft within the context of working with hoods. Viewers learn when to use chemical, biohazard and radio isotope hood systems, and the hazards associated with each.

Preparing for spills, fires and ventilation failures are discussed. The importance of always working six inches inside the hood is stressed, as is never placing one’s head within the hood, and to ensure the hood sash closed as far as possible. Lab workers are reminded to use the proper personal protective equipment for the substances at hand, in addition to lab coats, gloves and protective eyewear.

Workers use lab hoods when they are working with inherently hazardous materials. Help keep everyone safe by requiring every lab worker to see this online training video on lab hood safety.

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