The idea of creating a manual on occupational health risks in a chemical and biological analysis laboratory derives from the need to provide technical support for the various figures involved in activities requiring the safe use of chemical and biological agents in lab analysis. The purpose of this work is to provide workers with more detailed information on the main possible causes of risk in an analysis laboratory, as well as on the most appropriate means of individual and collective protection to be used at work. The manual also gives an overview of main laboratory safety standards pertain to clothing and equipment as well as procedures and lab design.
