Use suitable racks, straps, chains, or stands to support cylinders against an immovable object, such as a bench or a wall, during use and storage. Perform only those experiments authorized by your teacher. Wash your hands with soap and water after performing all experiments.
Check with your teacher for disposal of chemicals and solutions. Carefully follow all instructions, both written and oral. Never bleed a cylinder completely empty.
Follow all instructions given by your teacher. Leave a slight pressure to keep contaminants out. Know the types of protective equipment required while using any chemical. It is preferable that departmental staff collaborate on common procedures, processes and equipment for consistency with individual policies.
Refrigerators and microwave ovens used for chemical or biological storage or other laboratory use shall not be used for food storage or preparation. Leave your work station clean and in good order before leaving the laboratory. No one under the age of 16 may work or volunteer in a lab.
Chemicals shall be segregated by compatibility. No student may work in the science classroom without the presence of the teacher.
Place broken glass in the designated glass disposal container. Also ensure that the lab supplies you use should be the best quality product.
Ensure a chemical spill kit is available. A Hazardous material mixture shall be assumed to be as toxic as its most toxic component. A lab coat or smock should be worn during laboratory experiments. Work quietly — know what you are doing by reading the assigned experiment before you start to work.
Pay close attention to any cautions described in the laboratory exercises Do not taste or smell chemicals. Faculty, staff, and students should receive training on the proper procedures of cleaning a spill and a designated employee shall assure that the spill kits are properly stocked.
Do not taste, or smell any chemicals. Clean up work areas after the work is finished or at the end of each lab or workday. Keep hands away from face, eyes, mouth, and body while using chemicals or lab equipment.
Also there should be an instructor to guide you while conducting science experiments. Always use a tweezer.safety and health.” trols, special precautions for particularly hazardous substances, and a requirement for a Chemical Hygiene Officer responsible for implementation of the CHP.
The CHP must be tailored to reflect the specific chemical hazards present in the laboratory. Know the locations and operating procedures of all safety equipment including: first aid kit(s), and fire extinguisher.
Know where the fire alarm and the exits are located. Lab safety rules for students Report all accidents, injuries, and breakage of glass or equipment to instructor immediately. Keep pathways clear by placing extra items (books, bags, etc.) on the shelves or under the work tables.
Chapter Description This chapter discusses safe lab procedures and basic safety practices for the workplace, correct tool usage, and the proper disposal of computer components and supplies. 5 Safety Precautions to Ensure Safe use of Science Lab Equipment While working in a science lab it is very vital to take all the necessary safety precautions while working with science equipment.
Laboratories are dangerous and if safety precautions are not taken, there is. Determine the potential hazards and use appropriate safety precautions before beginning any new operation.
Be familiar with the location of emergency equipment such as fire alarms, fire extinguishers, emergency eyewash, and shower stations and know the appropriate emergency response procedures.Download
