Working in a laboratory, especially when handling toxic substances, requires general precautions. Users should be properly trained and abide by certain rules to ensure safety for the entire lab.
When considering these rules, it is easy to overlook weighing because of its simplicity. However, during weighing, balance users have the potential to come into direct contact with sample substances, particularly when weighing workflows have not been thoroughly considered and are subject to various external and environmental factors.
