OSHA’s lab safety guidelines identify fire as the most common serious incident that laboratories face; ignition of flammable clothing significantly escalates the risk of burn injury. So how do you ensure students are protected from hazards in a dynamic lab environment?

During this webinar, Ken Smith will share the strategy that University of California is using to address personal protection across their network of laboratories. He will walk the audience through the entire journey- from understanding the hazards and learning about protective technologies to planning distribution events and training personnel.

Join us as Ken describes the challenges they worked through and benefits they have seen as they work towards a sustainable laboratory protection program. A DuPont thermal specialist will also review fire protection fundamentals and answer your questions about the capabilities and limitations of flame-resistant and chemical-resistant technologies for use in laboratory applications.
