Safety matters. And in the lab, safety matters a lot.
However, selecting the safest type of labware for an application can be overlooked. And even with the best laboratory equipment for the task at hand, health and safety in the lab can still be improved by sharing information about the best working practices as widely as possible.
With more than 100 years of commitment to innovation across our business, we have created a wide range of products designed to improve lab safety, protecting you, your colleagues, and the contents you are working with. It has also inspired us to start sharing as much knowledge as we can about the safest ways to work with our products.
When working in the lab, certain applications benefit from specialist products designed with specific safety features in mind.
Our range of safety focused products delivers exactly this, with innovations designed to increase robustness and durability, protect against UV light damage, reduce the risk of spills and ensure safer handling.
Our safety badges also help to make it as easy as possible to identify the safety feature you need.
From advice on your initial selection of products, to information on caring for your labware, including safe cleaning and maintenance procedures, the more you and your colleagues know the more health and safety in the lab will be improved. Explore the advice below and don’t forget to share with your team!
