Australian companies involved in any lab work have to see to it that their lab scrubs meet industry standards and regulations to be considered safe, foolproof and effective.
This article discusses some of the most well-known electrical hazards lab technicians face, as well as how they can handle electrical accidents safely and responsibly.
How can employers ensure their workers have everything they need to protect their health and wellbeing? Here is what you need to look out for.
Safetyware's Cryogenic Gloves enable users to protect their hands and arms when working in hazardous and ultra-cold environments.
Medical experts have developed a low-cost way to customise N95 filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs) for health workers working on the frontline of the pandemic.
By using a special circuit and a conductive plate, a large and uniform voltage distribution recharges the mask in about one minute.
A newly developed molecule affords effective protection against coronavirus infection when sprayed into the nose, even after a few hours of exposure.
The smart mask utilises a high-sensitivity, wide-bandwidth flexible sensor that can detect and record daily human respiratory activity, such as breathing, coughing and speaking.
To maintain its benchmark in photovoltaic and renewable energy research, UNSW's School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering required a Life Safety System (LSS) upgrade.
Scientists have created a face mask that can detect common respiratory viruses, including influenza and SARS-CoV-2, in the air in droplets or aerosols.
The film is coated with a thin layer of particles that absorb UV light and produce reactive oxygen species (ROS). These kill viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.
The super-hygroscopic material enhances sweat evaporation within a personal protective suit, to create a cooling effect for better thermal comfort.
Researchers have developed a new theoretical model to better assess the risks of spreading viruses such as COVID-19 — with and without a face mask.
With face masks remaining a regular feature for most Australians, there may be a temptation to extend a mask's life by spraying it with sanitiser between uses.
The FFP2 face mask notifies the user via their smartphone when the permitted carbon dioxide (CO2) limits inside the mask are exceeded.
