Laboratories, due to handling a large number of dangerous chemicals and other substances, sometimes even without a known level of risk, have its unique set of risks. The simplest errors and mistakes can lead to undesirable results, such as;

  • Fires
  • Chemical burns
  • Explosions
  • Occupational diseases
  • Poisoning
  • Environmental damage


Among the listed undesirable events, explosions are quite common and particularly dangerous. An explosion may directly cause an injury, or indirectly due to flying shrapnel. Flash fires and excessive smoke from it may also cause respiratory problems, such as lung injuries.
