World day for safety and health at work 2016

work safety 28 aprilToday, 28 April, is the World day for safety and health at work. This year, “Workplace Stress: a collective challenge” is the theme of the campaign.

In the N&N Group we are really aware of all the issues concerning lab safety, waste management, and health at work. That is why we would like to share 10 simple tips with you:

  1. Never work alone in the lab. If working alone, leave the door open.
  2. Work with labcoat, glasses and gloves.
  3. Work under the fumehood when working with solvents and/or nanoparticles.
  4. Be aware of what is happening around you in the lab.
  5. Label all your samples and products, and leave a note if you leave an experiment running.
  6. Be aware of the potential risks of the products you are using: corrosive, flammable, harmful for the environment, etc.
  7. Separate well the residues generated.
  8. Properly clean the glassware and equipment that you use and your workplace.
  9. Before leaving the lab, make sure everything is in order.
  10. Keep calm and work safe! 


Tomorrow (Friday, 11 am)  there is a talk at ICMAB on “Waste generation and management in research centers and its committment with the environment”. We encourage you to go!Día Mundial Seguridad
