Kursens syfte The purpose of the course is to enable the students to obtain an understanding of risks and of principles in safety measures in the medical science laboratory, as well as a consciousness about general and individual responsibilities for the planning and execution of applicable safety measures. The purpose is also to develop skills in performing risk analyses and writing up risk assessments.
Kursens lärandemål After successfully completing this course you as a student should be able to evaluate the risks associated with experiments in the laboratory. The hazards could originate from chemicals, microbiological agents, cell cultures and human blood/tissues. You should also be able to identify the needs for suitable personal protective equipment, routines for waste management and transport. In addition, you should be familiar with the regulatory framework that governs these topics, the basic needs of a safe laboratory, and be able to identify the chain of responsibilities.
Kursens innehåll The course aims at giving theoretical and practical knowledge on chemical and biological aspects of laboratory safety. Topics will deal with writing risk assessments, chemical health risks including allergy, cancer and flammable agents, handling and storage of dangerous chemicals, handling of microorganisms and cell cultures including human blood and tissue samples, laboratory acquired infections, bio-safety measures including personal protection devices, ventilated workplaces, genetically modified microorganisms, bio-security and dual use, transport of dangerous goods and waste management.
Arbetsformer The information will be given as lectures, group discussions, practical sessions, web-tutorials and computer sessions during a total of six days.
Obligatoriska moment Presence during some of the course activities, marked in the schedule, is compulsory. Students cannot compensate for absence during compulsory activities, but are referred to coming courses for these activities.
Examination The examination is based on an individual written examination, a risk assessment and the active participation and contributions in a group presentation. One needs to pass each of these three assessments in order to pass the course.
