In the US, June was declared as National Safety Month by the National Safety Council (NSC) in 1996. The NSC observes the annual safety month to help us keep each other safe, especially in the workplace.

In honor of the Safety Month, the ETA would like to highlight the Enzyme Safety eLearning module titled “Working Safely with Enzymes” available on the website. This enzyme safety training could be used by enzyme manufacturers, distributors, and customers to help train their workers in the safe handling of enzymes. This eLearning module incorporates various key aspects of enzyme safety including properties of enzymes, health effects, methods to minimize potential exposure through control measures, workplace and medical surveillance, and testing.

The eLearning module is part of ETA’s efforts to expand access to training materials and guidance documents related to enzyme safe handling.

Stay safe everyone!
