"Accidents in Engineering Laboratories"
a research project from Mar=C3=ADa Alfonsina Salazar, a post grade student in
Sustainable Development, from University of Sonora in M=C3=A9xico.
Abstract: The occurrence
of accidents in laboratories of Higher Education's Institutions has picked up
in recent years. This could be in part
1. The lack of use of
personal protective equipment,
2. The failure to
implement specific regulations about the use of equipment and how to work with
hazardous materials, and
3. Errors caused by
workplace blindness, carelessness by laboratory users, etc.
The relevance of these factors are the
reason to identify what the most common occurrences are in order to correct
errors and avoid these accidents to happen again.
In this research, a list is displayed
with accidents known to be occurring in the laboratories of the University of
Sonora's Department of Engineering, between the years 2010 to 2014. In this
list the reader can find the type of accident and percentage of occurrence,
causes, and suggestions from the students to improve the safety, etc.
Guest Speaker: This research is been doing by Maria Alfonsina Salazar Escoboza from
Mexico, who is studying a post grade in Sustainable Development at the
University of Sonora. Currently, she is
at The Laboratory Safety Institute as International Intern, to collaborate and
learn from the LSI members =B4 knowledge and experience to enrich her thesis
project named: "Accidents in Engineering Laboratories".
