RISK ASSESSMENT TOOL FOR LABORATORIES (LAB RAT)

This semi-quantitative tool guides you through the process of identifying hazards associated with a specific laboratory process or an entire laboratory and then helps you assign a numerical risk to the process or laboratory.  The results of the risk assessment can then be used to identify specific hazards or controls which can be addressed to reduce risks.

Please note: This tool should be used by persons knowledgeable in laboratory operations.  Please review our training program on using the LAB RAT.
