 Lab Health and Safety Resources

Encourage Caring About One’s Health and Safety
One of the most important ways to do this is through education into the nature and seriousness of particular hazards and their potential consequences. I read of a hypothetical case where someone placed a rattlesnake in someone’s mailbox. If asked if it were dangerous to reach into his mailbox, the owner would say, “of course not.” Others who knew of the snake’s presence might think differently. Learn more

Slippery Business
There are many reasons for slips and falls, but they have one thing in common—they usually could and should have been prevented. Accidents do happen; however, by using a commonsense approach and following some simple key steps we can avoid the major causes of slips and falls. As in other safety programs, employee participation and vigilance are key to success. Learn more

Spine Tingling
There are some things that make your spine tingle that are exciting and good for you, but more often than not, if you experience a tingling in your back it is a sign of something bad. We are talking about back pain, herniated discs or worse. Back injuries are probably not something you immediately associate with laboratory research. However, there are plenty of ways to injure your back if you work in a laboratory, and back injuries are among the most common reasons for lost work time. Learn more

Titrette® Bottletop Burette Delivers Class A Precision

The BRAND Titrette® is the world’s first bottletop burette to provide titration within ASTM and ISO error limits for Class A glass burettes. The instrument is suitable for most titrants in concentrations up to 1 mol/L, and is an excellent choice for general chemistry, food/beverage analysis, environmental fieldwork and more. The Titrette® mounts directly on most titrant bottles, eliminating poured transfer, while the large digital display eliminates meniscus reading errors, and a recirculation valve simplifies priming.
