About Lab Safety Virtual Lab Simulation

Laboratories can be very dangerous, especially if you’ve never set foot in one before. So in this simulation, you’ll get the chance to make your debut in a virtual one! You will learn how to use the lab safety equipment, and how to react in case of an emergency. Detect and eliminate sources of danger and pass on your lab safety knowledge to friends.

Identify hazards

Safety first! Always pay attention to potential hazards when you enter a lab. In this simulation, you will create a tidy and safe working environment by identifying and eliminating hazards in the lab. You will be introduced to the lab safety rules and the safety equipment, which will help you and your colleagues, if something was to go wrong in a real lab.

Emergency training

You will be introduced to the basic hazard symbols used to categorize dangerous materials. You’ll use this knowledge to prevent dangerous situations, like acid spills. But you will also learn how to deal with unlabeled, potentially hazardous chemicals. By mastering such situations in this simulation, you won’t have to worry about being exposed to any real danger. You will learn how to operate the eye-wash and also get an introduction to various other pieces of lab safety equipment.

Spread your knowledge

It is important to share your newly acquired knowledge with your colleagues. In this simulation, you will meet your friend Lucy who’s never worked in a lab before. Pass on your lab safety knowledge and help her dress appropriately for a day in the lab.

Will you be able to apply your knowledge, and make sure that you and your friend stay safe in the laboratory?

Get Started Now

Survive your first day in the lab by identifying the different hazards you might encounter in an unsafe laboratory. You will be introduced to lab dress code, safety equipment and the do’s and don’ts when working in a lab.
