Laboratory Safety Standards Laboratory Safety Standards are in use in clinical and chemical labs, testing labs and research and development labs in industry and educational facilities. Lab safety standards pertain to clothing and equipment as well as procedures and lab design Find standards from International Organization of Standardization (ISO); International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA); ASTM International (ASTM); International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC); British Standards Institution (BSI); Laser Institute of America (LIA); Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI); Standards Australia (SAI); and American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).

There are many new laboratory safety standards introduced each year. ANSI encourages you to bookmark this page and return often to find out what has been added. Many important laboratory safety standards have been categorized below. There are many other laboratory safety standards that you can find using a keyword or document number search.
