Description

This website gives advice for the prevention of muscle and skeleton pain from working in laboratories. Several tasks, such as pipetting and microscopy are addressed in this information. The website also gives some useful links to other sources of information that could be useful in preventing injuries or minimizing health risks in the laboratory.

 

På NTNU finnes det mange typer laboratorier med svært forskjellige arbeidsoppgaver. For å forebygge arbeidsrelaterte muskel- og skjelettplager er det viktig at arbeidsplassene er godt tilrettelagte med stoler, arbeidsbenker, lys, utstyr og maskiner. God logistikk i laboratoriet, variasjon i arbeidsoppgaver og arbeidsstillinger medvirker også til å lette arbeidsdagen.
