Ehs Safe Laboratory Design

Laboratories must offer safe working conditions for the researchers, maintenance staff, and other inhabitants. 

The EHS (Environment, Health, and Safety) guidelines for best practices and safety standards must be incorporated early on starting with the laboratory design.

The safety practices must cover the general lab layout, infrastructure, equipment, HVAC, exhaust, gas distribution & electrical, fire protection, lab effluent & plumbing systems, operations and practically all aspects.
