Once you are up and running, it is easy to forget the importance of keeping your safety program “alive.” We provide resources at the level you need; from on-call Q&A through full program management. Let us support you as you work toward your corporate goals.
Biosafety and Chemical Safety Program Implementation
Laboratory “Best Practices” customized for your science and technology.
• Ongoing support of Biosafety and Chemical Safety Programs: manuals and training programs are “living” pieces of your safety program that should grow and change at the pace that your scientific program is growing and changing. We are constantly keeping our finger on the pulse of your program and updating your safety support to reflect your needs.
• Periodic waste stream reviews ensure cost-efficient and compliant waste segregation.
• Compliance with state and federal regulations: systems, procedures, practices, and training to meet all requirements.
• Safe handling of hazardous materials including chemical storage, inventory, storage limits, and PPE guidance.

Job Safety Analysis (JSA)
JSA write-ups for high hazard reagents or procedures become an appendix to the corresponding safety manual and training.
Prepare new employees and keep current employees “in the know”
Safety Partners can lead a customized on-site, virtual, and web-based training for your staff, with a variety of courses tailored to your science. Our courses include New Employee and Refresher Trainings. We also offer DOT and RCRA training courses with Training Contact Hours (TCHs). All trainings come with a certificate of completion.
Additional EHS programs
We are flexible and can step in as needed.
- Industrial Hygiene Monitoring
- Respirator safety and fit testing
- Highly Toxic, Explosive, Pyrophobic materials handling
