All laboratory reagents are considered harmful, and some may even be toxic. Therefore, it is important that participants are appropriately dressed for working in the laboratory. For example, they should wear layered, comfortable, full-length clothes, ensuring the legs are covered; shoes should most preferably be waterproof, fully covering the feet to protect against any accidental spillage.
Personal protective equipment, including lab coats, safety specs and gloves, will be provided for use during the training. However, participants should bring their own writing equipment, calculator, etc., for recording their results, and, if attending a 5-day programme, a laptop/tablet for preparing their presentation.
In addition, participants are advised to check weather conditions close to the course dates and bring appropriate clothing to wear when out and about.
