HAZARDS AND RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH
CLINICAL LABORATORY TECHNOLOGIST AND TECHNICIAN CAREERS
(INCLUDING PHLEBOTOMY TECHNICIAN) and Nursing Assistant
According to the US Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook:
“Clinical laboratory personnel are trained to work with infectious
specimens. When proper methods of infection control and
sterilization are followed, few hazards exist. Protective masks,
gloves, and goggles are often necessary to ensure the safety of
laboratory personnel.
Laboratories usually are well lighted and clean; however, specimens,
solutions, and reagents used in the laboratory sometimes produce fumes.
Laboratory workers may spend a great deal of time on their feet.”
