Print Save to File Printable View of: Module 3: Training File: Overview File: Facilities Overview Module 3: Personnel and Training Overview Welcome to Module Three. In order to perform quality work, the facilities housing the laboratory must meet certain minimum standards. Separation of activities that might cause cross contamination is a prime consideration. The control of environmental factors such as temperature and humidity that could influence the validity of the test results must be documented. Samples should be stored under suitable conditions and the whole laboratory must have a security policy that controls access to areas affecting the quality of the testing. Objectives At the end of this module students should: Know the requirements for handling hazardous chemicals, radiation, and biological materials. Understand the requirements for sample receipt and storage. Be familiar with the requirements for the use of research animals. Assignment Please note: The assignment is listed below and again on the final page of this module. You should consider the assignment questions as you read through the module content, then submit your assignment using the assignment submission form on the final page of this module.

Facilities Module 3: Personnel and Training Facilities Although facilities need not be palatial, they need to be large enough that one laboratory function cannot adversely affect any of the other laboratory functions. Specifically, this means that the various laboratory operations should be sufficiently removed from one other that sample contamination is prevented and the health and safety of the personnel is ensured. There are numerous regulations that spell out the minimum requirements for laboratories using biological materials, animals, chemicals and radiation. The reference "Prudent Practices" for Handling Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories , published in 1981 by the National Research Council, describes the various safety features that should be available in a chemical laboratory facility and the reasons for their inclusion. It also provides details needed for a chemical hygiene program. "Prudent Practices" is available from the National Academic Press 2101 Constitution Avenue, NW Washington DC 20418 An abbreviated version of "Prudent Practices" is found in 29 CFR 1910.1450 App A, National Research Council Recommendations Concerning Chemical Hygiene in Laboratories.
