A Medical Laboratory Technologist (MLT) is preparing to conduct an informal workplace inspection as part of the laboratory’s safety program.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this scenario, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize unsafe work situations and practices.
  2. Identify and assess safety hazards and risks.
  3. Select appropriate controls to mitigate safety risks and hazards.
  4. Identify situations where there is a safety concern and advocate for worker safety.
