Workplace health and safety

"Over recent years, safety has become one of the major issues in our Laboratory. With the increased use of the Laboratory by researchers with different backgrounds and levels of experience, it has become imperative that safety is at the forefront of all our activities. Safe working habits and knowledge of emergency procedures in the event of misadventure are essential."

- Prof Martin A. Green
