Petrochemical labs have unique hazards that generalized OSHA training programs do not cover, and "on-the-job" safety training is not acceptable. With increased pressure to rapidly report results and more complex equipment and procedures, it is more important than ever to implement new hire/refresher training regarding lab safety. This course covers the use of specific equipment and stresses the importance of using good safety practices.
