I work in a research lab and as long as you are following safety guildlines you should be ok. It would not hurt to also be on the safer side as well, work under hoods, masks, double glove, not work in a BL3 setting, ask for help if you need it. As far as standing for long periods of time, you might be able to get a bench stool. Good luck
