What are Safety Regulations for a laboratory?

Safety regulations have different sources. For this reason, it is hard to define what the specific safety regulations are.

What are different sources for  Safety Regulations?

  • Company instructions
  • Local (e.g., city) or country laws
  • Different departments within the government may have rules in place

The first rule is to protect the people from all kinds of hazards, buildings and the environment are of secondary concern, but still important. For example, when designing the floor plan, consideration should be given to providing access via multiple routes, in case of a blockage during an emergency. Or, it is necessary to include all required information and safety signs in your laboratory design.
