KI´s Laboratory safety test
As a new employee at one of KI´s departments, but also for existing staff, you are offered a basic laboratory safety test, in order to be able to work in a safe and secure manner in the laboratory environment. It is important that all staff knows and follows the safety routines within KI.
For those who wants to learn more, several courses on work environment and laboratory safety are provided by KI: Courses by the Environment, Safety- and Security unit.
There are two introductory tests available; one with general questions about safety/work environment that is relevant to everyone who will work at a department at KI, and one test for those who are also laboratory personnel, which includes 5 additional sections with questions on laboratory safety.
