Inspections for Containment Level 3 Labs – Do you have a procedure in place?
1 May 2021
Training advice and efficacy studies from Crowthorne Group can help CL3 labs ensure that guidelines are being adhered to and that they are prepared for any eventuality.
Containment procedures for CL3 labs are a hot topic, with increasing pressure on laboratory teams to ensure that facilities are leak free and for lab managers to provide evidence of containment.
It is important that labs check containment on a regular basis to ensure that any potentially hazardous leaks are identified and resolved quickly. If a facility is in need of fumigation, it is essential that this can be carried out quickly and effectively.
HSE are increasingly asking laboratory staff to provide reports on the standard their lab containment requirements meet. Having a procedure in place between annual inspections enables labs to demonstrate working to the highest standards.
As well as providing efficacy studies which identify areas that may require additional training, Crowthorne Group can advise on the types of training needed to ensure HSE requirements are met. The company also provides fumigation services to CL3 facilities, and has experienced engineers countrywide to ensure a quick and efficient response.
