From training courses & free webinars to fume hood audits & consultations, we are here to help industry professionals.
Managing a lab is more than a full-time job. But time has to be made for necessary things, like training. Accidents are all too common, many can be prevented with a little more awareness of the hazards that exist in a lab. We are not here to make more work for you, but to actually make your job easier, maybe even make you a hero if an accident can be avoided.
Fume hoods are unique in that they are both a PPE and an Engineering Control. As such, exactly who is responsible for their performance is questionable, yet we know it takes a lot of different people to ensure safe and energy efficient performance. 25% of performance failures are caused by the user’s work practices.
When hoods don’t work there are other issues, the indoor air becomes polluted, there can be contamination to the work in-process and the chances of an incident increase dramatically. We find that most people working with or around fume hoods have had no formal training. Let us help you have a safe workplace.
