Description : DESIGN and PLANNING of Research and Clinical LABORATORYFACILITIES In this primer/professional reference, Leonard Mayer demystifiesone of the most complex architectural specialties. An architectwith more than thirty-three years' experience as a master plannerand programmer of laboratories and clinical facilities, Mr. Mayeroffers a comprehensive overview of the fundamental issues relatedto laboratory planning and design. He also provides designers witha clear and rational framework through which to approach thishighly challenging and rewarding design specialty. A superblearning tool for students and professionals just getting startedin lab design and a valuable one-volume reference for theexperienced professional, Design and Planning of Research andClinical Laboratory Facilities features: * Step-by-step guidance through the complex maze of codes,specifications, standards, and official guidelines, relating to theplanning, design, and construction processes * New and updated design criteria based on the most recent laws andregulations * Master plans, facility programs, functional programs andrequirements programs for a wide variety of scientific and medicaldisciplines and support facilities * Comprehensive lists of relevant codes, regulations, standards,guidelines, and important architectural, structural, mechanical,electrical, and plumbing criteria Research and clinical laboratory facilities are, perhaps, the mostcomplex structures to plan and design. Intimidated by a vast andseemingly impenetrable body of codes, regulations, and designcriteria pertaining to lab design and construction, manyarchitects, unfortunately, choose to avoid what can be one of themost profitable and professionally rewarding areas ofspecialization. Written by an architect with more than thirty-three years ofexperience as a master planner and programmer of laboratories andclinical facilities, this book demystifies the process oflaboratory planning and design. It provides a comprehensiveoverview of the fundamental issues related to laboratory design andoffers readers detailed, step-by-step guidance through the complexmaze of design specifications and codes, standards, and officialguidelines that must be addressed during the programming, planning,design, and construction process. Focusing mainly on laboratory programming, planning, and designcriteria for "wet" laboratory environments, Leonard Mayer providesexamples from numerous master plans, facility programs, functionalprograms and requirements programs applicable to a wide variety ofscientific and medical disciplines, and related facilities. Relatedfunctions and activities include administrative offices, computercenters, core service and support, building services facilities,and more. He presents new and updated design criteria based onrecent laws and regulations and supplies readers with comprehensivelists of relevant codes, regulations, standards, guidelines, andarchitectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbingcriteria. Design and Planning of Research and Clinical Laboratory Facilitiesis an excellent primer for architecture students and newcomers tothe field, as well as an indispensable single-volume reference forexperienced professionals. It is also an invaluable resource forresearchers and investigators, facility planners and managers,plant engineers, and all others involved with the design,construction, maintenance, and administration of laboratoryfacilities.

Description : Make your environmental lab--and lab technicians' work practices--the safest possible. * Protect workers from hazardous material they handle on-site * Protect the civilian population from harm in a hazardous materials emergency * Prevent accidents before they happen The purpose of Safe Work Practices for the Environmental Laboratory is twofold: 1. For the person designated as the laboratory's Chemical Hygiene Officer or Safety Officer, this text is a user friendly reference that will provide a format, a template, a guide to compliance with OSHA's Laboratory Standard (29 CFR 1910.145); and 2. for the person who is assigned to work in the environmental laboratory, this user-friendly text provides the information needed not only to perform routine laboratory tasks correctly, but also to perform them safely. The environmental lab is involved with performing analytical testing and sampling protocols relating to air, soil, biosolids, sludges, drinking water, wastewater, groundwater, stormwater, waste characterization, petroleum products, and HRSD/NPDES effluent studies. Many wastewater treatment plants and water works have their own environmental laboratories. These labs primarily perform analysis of process conditions to ensure optimization of the process. However, even these small labs (a few are quite large) perform "environmental sampling" and therefore are environmental labs. The actual genesis of the environmental laboratory can be attributed to the environmental regulations that have been generated by USEPA, AOAC, ASTM, NIOSH, OSHA, and other regulatory and advisory entities. The typical environmental laboratory contains several different types of hazards the lab worker must guard against. This is the case even though modern environmental laboratories have been designed to take maximum advantage of engineering controls that work to "engineer-out" most hazards. The main hazard discussed in this text has to do with hazardous materials--dangerous chemicals and compounds--and the effect they can have on work practices. OSHA is quite specific in regard to protecting the laboratory worker from harm that could result from handling hazardous materials--these specifics are discussed in detail throughout this text. It is important to point out that this text will provide the user with more than just a "safety book." For example, this text provides the user with a sample Chemical Hygiene Plan, it discusses various safe work practices for standard operating procedures normally performed in the environmental laboratory, and it discusses procedures to use for emergency response activities, such as clean-up of chemical spills. The bottom line is that probably the most important benefit to be derived from using this text is the exposure the user receives to the lessons and examples presented throughout the text; these lessons learned and examples provide information on how to make your environmental laboratory and the performance of your individual work practices safer. When you get right down to it, isn't this what a safety text should be all about?

Description : This book provides a summary of the main obstacles for creating and maintaining high standards of health and safety in higher education and research organisations. The obstacles include high staff turnover and an uncertain and constantly evolving research environment, small groups lacking unified management structure, deadline time pressures, restricted funding models and existing "old school" culture. Often the Health and Safety specialists and personnel managers in these organisations find themselves reiterating the same information, which gets lost as soon as the new cohort of workers arrives. Providing insight into methods of managing health and safety, training, and supervision, which help to build a strong and reliable health and safety system, this book is a collection of "best practices" from experienced safety professionals and researchers in Europe and the United States. These experiences demonstrate how health and safety professionals have overcome these issues and provide readers with ideas and models they can use in their own organisations. The information contained within is aimed at health and safety professionals and managers in universities and research organisations conducting scientific and engineering research with transient workers and students worldwide.
