Planning for Emergencies in the Lab


An emergency in a laboratory setting is something that none of us want. However, being prepared for a lab emergency is critical. That’s why this training video on “Planning for Laboratory Emergencies” is so important for your lab workers. How will your lab employee handle an emergency situation? Do they know what to do in case of a chemical spill, fire, radiation or biological exposure or natural disaster?

This lab safety video will educate your lab workers on the following topics: the lab’s emergency plan, how to activate alarms and what distinguishes the warning sounds, how to alert emergency personnel, as well as evacuation routes and emergency procedures. The video also teaches lab employees the importance of warning others about accidents that have occurred, helping potentially injured co-workers, attacking or confining fires, how to alert emergency services, and proper facility evacuation procedures.

The training video also covers fires, fire extinguishers, thermal burns (chemical burns), explosions, and chemical spills. An emergency in the lab is something that we all hope will never happen. After this training, we will at least have an educated lab staff that knows what to do “just in case.” This training is available on a DVD, USB Stick, or you can also purchase the training via our online safety training program.

This training video is 16 minutes in length and you can watch a full-length preview below.


All of our training videos include the following additional resources:

1) A Leader’s Guide

The person giving the training can use the Guide to help facilitate the training and provide additional verbal support to the video. It also includes a sample outline for the training session along with the highlights of the course.

2) An Employee Quiz

Important to be able to test your trainees to make sure they understand and comprehend the training course they just watched.  This is also good for employer documentation for safety training of employees.

3) Answer Key to the Quiz

Ensures the questions are being answered correctly.

4) An Attendance Sheet

Allows you to keep track of who was trained, when the training occurred, who was the instructor, etc. Excellent documentation to prove your training requirements are in order.

5) A Printable “Certificate of Completion”

Allows you to give one to each employee who attends the safety training session.  Can also be kept in an employee file for training documentation.
