LABORATORY STAFF QUALITY AND COMPLIANCE AWARENESS TRAINING
Your laboratory staff are the single most influential asset to acquiring accurate, precise, reliable and trustworthy analytical data. Irrespective of all the documentation and instrumentation available to the laboratory, if your staff do not possess the appropriate combination of education, training and experience or are not managed and motivated in an appropriate manner to handle all be laboratory’s activities, it will not be possible to consistently obtain high quality analytical data.
As an example, the most advanced analytical instrumentation can not create accurate, precise and reliable results if incorrect parameters are entered by the operator, because they did not have the right job-orientated training.
In addition to their scientific and laboratory skills, your staff also need to understand, and be current with the ever changing quality and regulatory requirements associated with analytical testing. These requirements and expectations are always changing and new requirements, expectations and interpretations are emerging all the time.
Unfortunately these changing and emerging requirements and expectations are often communicated in a fragmentary piecemeal fashion, often only becoming apparent during a regulatory inspection or as a result of a warning letter. This makes keeping up to date with current requirements and trends a time consuming activity.
For this reason all laboratory quality standards require that staff shall be qualified by an appropriate combination of education, training and experience to perform their assigned tasks.
We can advise and assist you on developing:
Systems for documenting training
In addition, with access to numerous online regulatory databases I can help your staff maintain awareness of current regulatory requirements by:
