Many people may believe that the environmental conditions and safety measures in a laboratory are no more dangerous than a regular working environment. However, significant hazards do exist. The Diploma in Laboratory Safety – Level 4 is designed to introduce learners to laboratory safety procedures such as infectious agents, poisons, explosives, flammable, high temperatures and high voltage. As a result, laboratories must take significant steps to implement precaution and safety control measures.  

Individuals following the course will be presented with valuable information such as standard operating procedures, using protective clothing application and personal protective equipment.

The Diploma in Laboratory Safety – Level 4 offers safety procedure training to address safety and every day issues in laboratory environments. Laboratory workers can broaden their knowledge on laboratory safety and recognising emergency situations. This will prompt employees to take proper precautionary measures to protect themselves and co-workers on how to prevent illness, accidents and injuries on the job. By the completion of the course learners will be able to identify laboratory hazards, understand the chemical hygiene plan and how to act effectively in emergencies.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Global Edulink to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
