Shelving is an important component of laboratory infrastructure that plays a crucial role in organizing and storing laboratory supplies, equipment, and samples. Proper shelving in a laboratory environment ensures that all materials are easily accessible, well-organized, and safe from damage. In this article, we will discuss the importance of shelving in a laboratory environment and some best practices for shelving organization.

Why is Shelving Important in a Laboratory Environment?

Laboratories handle a wide range of materials, from small lab supplies to bulky equipment and samples. To keep these materials organized and easily accessible, a well-designed shelving system is essential. Here are some reasons why shelving is important in a laboratory environment:

  • Space Utilization: Laboratory spaces are often limited, and shelving is an efficient way to utilize vertical space. By using shelves, you can increase the storage capacity of a laboratory without compromising on available floor space.

  • Organization: With many materials, it's easy for a laboratory to become cluttered and disorganized. Shelving provides a designated place for materials, making it easier to find what you need when you need it.

  • Safety: Proper shelving can help prevent accidents and protect materials from damage. For example, shelving can be used to store chemicals in a safe manner, preventing spills and leaks.

  • Accessibility: Shelving makes it easy to access materials quickly, which is important in a laboratory environment where time is often a critical factor. Properly organized shelving ensures that items are easily accessible without creating hazards.

Best Practices for Shelving Organization in a Laboratory Environment

Here are some best practices for shelving organization in a laboratory environment:

  • Prioritize safety: Safety should be the top priority when organizing shelving in a laboratory environment. When storing materials on shelves, ensure that they are secure and unlikely to fall or tip over. Also, be sure to properly label shelves that contain hazardous materials.

  • Categorize materials: Categorize materials by type, size, and frequency of use. For example, store frequently used items at eye level and reserve lower and higher shelves for less frequently used materials.

  • Use proper containers: Use proper containers for storage on shelves. Glass containers should be avoided if possible, and plastic containers should be used with caution. Use containers that are appropriate for the specific materials being stored.

  • Label everything: Proper labeling is crucial for effective shelving organization. Clearly label shelves with the contents and any relevant safety information. Use color-coded labels for easy identification of different materials.

  • Regularly audit and adjust: Regularly audit and adjust the shelving organization to ensure that it remains effective. Remove materials that are no longer needed, and adjust shelf heights to accommodate new materials.


In conclusion, shelving is an essential component of laboratory infrastructure. Proper shelving in a laboratory environment ensures that materials are organized, easily accessible, and safe from damage. By following best practices for shelving organization, laboratories can improve efficiency and safety while minimizing the risk of accidents and mistakes.
