PERSONAL AND GENERAL LABORATORY SAFETY:
Never eat or drink anything while working in the laboratory.
Read labels carefully.
Do not use any equipment unless you are trained and approved as a user by your supervisor.
Wear safety glasses or face shields when working with hazardous materials and/or equipment.
Wear gloves when using any hazardous or toxic agent.
Clothing: When handling dangerous substances, wear gloves, laboratory coats, and safety shield or glasses.
If you have long hair or loose clothes, make sure it is tied back or confined.
Keep the work area clear of all materials except those needed for your work. Coats should be hung in the hall or placed in a locker. Extra books, purses, etc. should be kept away from equipment that requires air flow or ventilation to prevent overheating.
Students are responsible for the proper disposal of used material if any in appropriate containers.
If a piece of equipment fails while being used, report it immediately to your lab assistant or tutor. Never try to fix the problem yourself because you could harm yourself and others.
If leaving a lab unattended, turn off all ignition sources and lock the doors.
Clean up your work table area before leaving.
Wash hands before leaving the lab and before eating.
Avoid wastage of water and use judiciously.
Obtain permission before operating any high voltage equipment.
Maintain an unobstructed access to all electrical panels.
Wiring or other electrical modifications must be referred to the Electronics Shop or the Building Coordinator.
Avoid using extension cords whenever possible. If you must use one, obtain a heavy-duty one that is electrically grounded, with its own fuse, and install it safely. Extension cords should not go under doors, across aisles, be hung from the ceiling, or plugged into other extension cords.
Never, ever modify, attach or otherwise change any high voltage equipment.
Always make sure all capacitors are discharged (using a grounded cable with an insulating handle) before touching high voltage leads or the "inside" of any equipment even after it has been turned off. Capacitors can hold charge for many hours after the equipment has been turned off.
When you are adjusting any high voltage equipment or a laser which is powered with a high voltage supply, USE ONLY ONE HAND. Your other hand is best placed in a pocket or behind your back. This procedure eliminates the possibility of an accident where high voltage current flows up one arm, through your chest, and down the other arm.
Treat every chemical as if it were hazardous.
Make sure all chemicals are clearly and currently labeled with the substance name, concentration, date, and name of the individual responsible.
Never return chemicals to reagent bottles. (Try for the correct amount and share any excess.)
Comply with fire regulations concerning storage quantities, types of approved containers and cabinets, proper labeling, etc.
Use volatile and flammable compounds only in a fume hood. Procedures that produce aerosols should be performed in a hood to prevent inhalation of hazardous material.
Never allow a solvent to come in contact with your skin. Always use gloves.
Never 'smell' a solvent!! Read the label on the solvent bottle to identify its contents.
Dispose of waste and broken glassware in proper containers.
Clean up spills immediately.
Do not store food in laboratory refrigerators.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY GUIDELINES:
Never do unauthorized experiments.
2Never work alone in the laboratory.
Keep your table and lab space clean and organized.

Always inform your instructor if you break a thermometer. Do not clean mercury yourself!!
Never taste anything. Never pipette by mouth; use a bulb.
Never use open flames in laboratory.
Check your glassware for cracks each time while you use it. Cracks could cause the glassware to fail during use and cause serious injury to you or lab mates.
Maintain unobstructed access to all exits, fire extinguishers, electrical panels, emergency showers, and eye washes.
Do not use corridors for storage or work areas.
Do not store heavy items above table height. Any overhead storage of supplies on top of cabinets should be limited to lightweight items only.
