This course is aimed at supervisors of UV equipment and others who are responsible for areas where artificial sources of UV equipment are used. It gives an understanding of the hazards of ultraviolet radiation and practical methods of protection from artificial sources. It may also be appropriate for users of artificial UV sources, although appropriate practical training on specific equipment should be provided within departments.

A microbiological safety cabinet (MSC) is a vital piece of equipment that helps to prevent exposure to biological hazards. All containment laboratory users and their supervisors should know how to use MSCs effectively, what the standards are for the different levels of containment, and how the facilities are managed. This course will help both users and managers understand their responsibilities in creating a safe working area and provide both theory and practical knowledge on the safe and effective use of tissue culture (Class II) cabinets.
