    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides information and sets out recommendations, general procedures and precautions designed to promote safety of persons and property in laboratory operations. The safety aspects described apply to personnel who use the laboratory facilities including students, visitors, maintenance staff, cleaners, laboratory staff, contractors, security staff and other authorized personnel. This Standard deals specifically with safe practices in laboratories and does not cover the design and construction of laboratories, which is the subject of AS 2982. The Standard is intended to be used in conjunction with other Parts of the Standard, i.e. Parts 2 to 7 which refer to specific laboratory occupancies.
