E-learning Working with hazardous substances in the lab (Dutch)
Laboratory technicians often undergo extensive training in their early careers, which equips them with the necessary skills and knowledge to handle hazardous substances safely. However, as time passes, some of this knowledge can fade due to a lack of exposure or changes in best practices. Chemicals, equipment, and safety regulations can all evolve, leaving technicians potentially unaware of new risks and safety measures.
The course is presented in clear and comprehensive online presentations about working with hazardous substances in the lab.
