EDsession: HSW in the Design of Science and Laboratory Environments

  • Date:Wednesday, October 23
  • Time:8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
  • Location:Classroom 201
  • Description: The dangers that exist within science labs and research facilities are extensive and require special consideration during the design and development phases of construction. Whether it is a new building or the renovation of an existing facility, safety concerns must be established and incorporated into design considerations. This course will discuss safety concerns with the placement of fume hoods, workstation layouts, use of safety stations and equipment and general safety concerns within lab and science facilities.
  • Learning Objective 1:Discuss how the occupancy load of the lab affects the safety issues within the design process of the facility.
  • Learning Objective 2:Obtain an understanding on how external factors affect the appropriate placement of fume hoods.
  • Learning Objective 3:Gain an appreciation for the safety aspects of workstation design as to its influence on safety issues.
  • Learning Objective 4:Acquire an comprehension on the appropriate layout and placement of emergency equipment and supplies.
