Lab workers often handle materials or substances that could be considered explosive or flammable. That is why this “Flammables and Explosives in the Laboratory” training video is so important. The viewer will learn to define flammables and explosives in the workplace, how to store these materials, how to dispose or store these hazardous materials and substances, and what to do in case of an explosion or fire.
The video also discusses the “limits of flammability” including the upper and lower flammable limits, as well as ignition temperature. Further topics include the importance of removing heat or sparks from certain areas which might include stirrers, pumps, hotplates, the use of heating mantels or water baths, and Bunsen burners.
The training also teaches lab workers how to read Safety Data Sheets (SDS) to find flashpoints, ignition temperatures and flammability limits of the chemicals and substances they are working with. If your lab workers use flammables or other materials that might ignite or explode, then this training video will help educate them on their responsibilities to keep the lab setting safe. This training is available on a DVD, USB Stick, or you can also purchase the training via our online safety training program.
