Dec 6, 2018 @ 1PM ET/12PM CT| MABioN Webinar – A Change in Climate Can Lead to a Better Safety Culture
MABioN is proud to offer a webinar discussing
A Change in Climate Can Lead to a Better Safety CultureLaboratory animal research presents unique hazards to worker safety. Many times, unsafe conditions are not discovered until an injury occurs. In most cases, the injury could have been prevented had someone informed the staff or safety team of an at-risk condition or a near miss. To cultivate the safety climate in animal facilities and encourage proactive rather than reactive reporting, laboratory animal resource (LAR) groups should partner with the safety, health, and environment (SHE) groups to take a behavioral-based safety (BBS) approach. A primary focus is to measure the performance of culture, rather than the absence of injury. This presentation will look at implementing BBS from both a Safety and LAR management level as well as how BBS can impact employees from all levels.
In recognition of Biosafety Month, Applied Biosafety and the ILAR Journal have collaborated on a one-of-a-kind themed edition on worker safety when handling laboratory animals. Content of the ILAR Journal will be published online in October 2018 as articles become available. To further promote animal biosafety, Applied Biosafety is providing free access to Volume 23, Number 3 through October 31, 2018. Access the free issue
