Health and safety are complicated and often neglected issues in laboratory design. Since the successful publication in 1987 of the first edition of Guidelines for Laboratory Design: Health and Safety Considerations, many new issues involved in cost-effective design of new laboratories or in the renovation of existing facilities need to be dealt with. For laboratory owners and managers, architects, engineers, health and safety personnel, and risk managers, this new edition provides a systematic approach to examining the occupational health and safety factors that have a direct bearing on those who work in science and engineering laboratories. The book begins by presenting you with the common elements of laboratory design, looking squarely at building and laboratory considerations - you'll learn what sort of materials are used, what types of operations occur within the site, and the health and safety issues related to the entire laboratory building. In addition to all the various laboratories discussed in the first edition, ranging from the general chemistry laboratory to the physics laboratory to the biosafety laboratory, two new types of laboratories are presented. The microelectronics laboratory is included which is an extension of the chapter on clean rooms that addresses clean room operations where extremely hazardous materials are used. A chapter on print-making laboratories is included where such activities as lithography, screen printing and intaglio and relief processes are carried out. The chapter on the teaching laboratory has been expanded to reflect the trend toward microscale techniques and the resultant design considerations. A new part has been added to this edition which discusses the support services needed for laboratory operations. These include photographic darkrooms, support rooms for such activities as glass blowing, metal working and wood working and rooms to handle chemical, biological, and radiation waste. And finally, to complete this u
