The Laboratory Safety Institute (LSI) is a nonprofit organization providing safety education for government, industry and educational laboratories worldwide. Since 1978, we have taught more than 100,000 scientists, teachers and lab professionals in 30 countries. Our “real world” approach opens eyes with true accounts of lab incidents you won’t forget. Try a 60-minute webinar or sign up for a three- or four-day lab safety boot camp. Our curriculum covers more than 100 topics, from chemical hygiene officer certification to convincing your boss to care about safety. LSI teacher scholarships allow K-12 teachers to receive the same workshops we offer corporate clients at drastically reduced rates. We’re on a mission: to make safety an integral part of education, work and life.
