Why Earn This Badge?

In science research, educational, and industrial labs safety is of critical importance for all people involved.  A safe environment not only protects those working in the area but also future consumers of products or medications.  Safe work environments assist in keeping the natural environment healthy in that knowledge of what is being used allows for proper storage and disposal.  Knowledge of the substances that one is using and how they should be used and maintained is essential in many other situations too. Food preparation, vehicle mechanics, and many other workplaces require knowledge of material safety.
