A comprehensive health and safety program should be taken as seriously as the quality of the laboratory's work product. The onus is on the safety officer to ensure that the program meets the needs of the laboratory, fits into the overall scheme of the laboratory, and meets all necessary Federal, State and local requirements. The components of the safety program covered in this section are intended as an outline for the minimum standards necessary when developing a program. Further development may be necessary.
