    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements, recommendations and general guidelines to promote safety in laboratories. Covers laboratory planning, safety and emergency management for laboratories and general safety precautions relevant to a wide range of laboratories.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements, general procedures, precautions, recommendations and information designed to promote safety of persons and property in laboratory operations. The safety aspects described in this Standard apply to laboratory staff, maintenance staff, contractors, visitors and other authorized personnel, including students, cleaners and security staff who use or enter the laboratory facilities.This Standard deals specifically with safe practices in laboratories and does not cover the design and construction of laboratories, which is covered in building regulations and is the subject of AS/NZS2982.1.NOTE: This Standard does not cover field work performed outside the laboratory.
