The transition from an academic lab to an industrial lab can be quite challenging for new graduates. When entering the pharmaceutical industry, the expectations for lab safety can come with a steep learning curve, especially when the new employee comes from an environment where lab safety is not up to industry standard. This talk will focus on how pharmaceutical companies approach safety for lab-scale chemistry. Additionally, it will offer suggestions for free and low-cost methods to ensure high-risk chemistry is identified and performed safely. Recent case studies also will be presented to show how the methods described may have prevented the incidents.
