AFNS Lab Safety

AFNS strives to maintain a safe environment and to encourage safe practices. However, the individual and ‘work groups’ must also accept responsibility for safety and security. This means being familiar with safety aspects and employing that knowledge every day. You must know how to properly and safely handle chemicals, radio­iso­topes, bio­hazar­dous materials, and equip­ment used in your work, and how to properly perform specific tasks or techniques before commencing work.
