Seeking input on lab safety training book

Hi folks –

We are working on a rewrite of a popular book with our lab folks, Lab Safety Made Simple, that was done in 2006 by Terry Jo Gile.

If you know the book, you know that it helps laboratory directors facing increasing pressure from OSHA, the Joint Commission, COLA,  and CAP to train frontline staff on safety compliance every year. Safety compliance training not only fulfills annual regulatory requirements, but also helps to maintain a safe work environment, protect your facility’s bottom line, and avoid fines or fees from major regulators.

The book is packed with tips, tools, games, activities, and case studies, Lab Safety Training Made Simple features training methods culled from lab experts in the field. It provides guidance on how to design successful training for employees of various ages, learning styles, levels of education, and job experience.

We also are planning to take the book electronic, and provide a lot of the tools in e-reader format for those of you who like to take your information mobile on a tablet or phone.

A lot has changed in 9 years, including GHS and a bunch of things related to waste management and other things.

What I’d like to know is what you want to see in the book? Is there a need for it? What would help you do your job better?

Please drop me a line at jpalmer@hcpro.com with any feedback. Thank you!
