Guide for laboratory safety resources

It has been known for many years that the laboratory work environment is
potentially dangerous. Therefore, a new Danish website offers a system for
communication about work environment matters ­ centered around the Danish
laboratory sector.

The goal is to to establish a close communication about work environment
factors among partners within the laboratory sector - individuals as well as
organisations, both private and public, including governmental- and control
authorities.

Furthermore it contributes to make the gathered knowledge and experience useful
by spreading the results to the widest possible extent worldwide.

Some of the parts of the labsafety.dk build-up are articles or linkcollections,
trying to concentrate key points of information within a chosen subject. The
subjects are chosen among problem areas, considered of vital importance to the
laboratory working environment.Topics include risk assesment, interactive
learning and several links concerning lab safety about
