    This article by Adyanthaya and Jose (2013) discusses the stages required in creating a quality histology report as well as safety precautions for reducing risk in the histopathology laboratory. For them, histopathology is both an art and a science that involves evaluating and interpreting the forms, sizes, and distinct patterns of cells and tissues in order to arrive at an appropriate diagnosis.

    • One of the most crucial parts of the laboratory is the histopathology lab or the histopathology department. Under it lies the establishing of a correct and final diagnosis that will lead to an effective treatment for the patient. In doing this, histopathologists and health care workers perform and carry out various procedures and activities that are evaluated and monitored accurately to ensure a reliable report. Thus, quality control is done and applied to all pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical activities at all times. However, all of these activities are prone to risks and safety issues that involve potentially hazardous chemicals, biohazardous materials, accidents in using the equipment and instruments, and general risks from electrical and fire hazards. That is why as health workers, it is our responsibility to be fully aware of our actions and strictly follow risk management and laboratory safety at all times. All laboratories are required to implement safety rules and regulations. The standard operating procedure (SOP) explains the proper way of handling specimens, as well as risk assessments, and other health and safety information like first aid techniques. It anchors to reduce errors, enhance efficiency and profitability, establish a healthy work environment, and develop rules for resolving problems and overcoming difficulties.
