Webinar: Creating a Culture of Safety in the Life Science Laboratory

Every organization has its own culture, but not every culture promotes safety. In this webinar, we'll explore the concept of creating a culture of safety from two angles.

What you'll learn:

  • Sean Kaufman will present about the humanistic roots of culture. He will reference case studies of the highly publicized CDC Laboratory Anthrax situation and address Workforce Preparedness Response to the Ebola virus in the U.S. and in West Africa.
  • Brian Garrett will discuss the infrastructure aspect of culture. He will present new technology in biological safety cabinets that challenges old thinking and has the potential to reset the bar of expectations for safety in the laboratory.
