Presented by Maureen Doran, MS, HTL(ASCP), Saffron Scientific Histology Services, Carbondale, IL

Fire and explosion hazards of flammable and combustible materials exist in histology laboratories. The safe handling of these materials requires an understanding of the hazards and procedures needed to minimize the risk. This presentation will discuss the OSHA, NFPA and EPA guidelines used for defining and classifying flammable/combustible materials. These guidelines will help define the storage and dispensing requirements for our facilities. Safety precautions that include PPE, engineering controls, disposal and emergency procedures will be discussed.
