This textbook will serve as an ideal partner/companion and tool to make your workplace namely, the laboratory, as the safest place (whether you run a stand-alone laboratory or as part of a hospital setup). A simple step such as keeping the sleeves of your labcoat a little short can prevent spread of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and fomite transmittable viral diseases.
A laboratory can be and usually is the most contaminated place in a hospital. However, it can be made as safe as any other place associated with healthcare delivery.
This book introduces the Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and keeps in mind the safety vis-a-vis the microbes, chemicals and radioactive materials.
What World Health Organization (WHO) advises and what Centres for Disease Control (CDC) recommends, you will find all within the covers of this treatise. Having followed the book and undertaken all corrective measures it should be possible for you to pass the test of acquiring International Organization for Standardization (lSO)/Joint Commission International (JCI) or even Certified Authorization Professional (CAP) certification.
The book also presents all basic facts of Biocides. Once basic concepts of Biocides are understood, their application becomes much more easy.
