STANDARDIZATION AND CALIBRATION OF LABORATORY EQUIPMENT
Knowledge of the requirements for standardization and calibration of laboratory equipment, A-level calibration,
and safety procedures is important for the petroleum laboratory NCO in developing a laboratory SOP.
During this block of instruction we will discuss the requirements for standardization and calibration of laboratory
equipment, A-level calibration, and safety procedures.
Terminal Learning Objective:
Acquire knowledge on identifying equipment requiring calibration, establishing a calibration
schedule for each piece of equipment, establishing procedures for internal "C" level calibration,
identifying external agencies for "A" level calibration, establishing safety and environmental
procedures, and developing a laboratory equipment calibration SOP.
Condition: Given all required materials.
Standards: This task will be accomplished according to TB 43-180 and the current Annual Book of ASTM
