Transcript of Science Safety Rules

Science Safety Rules General Rules Dress Code Emergency Procedures First Aid Personal Protective Equipment Sharps Glassware Safety Fire/Heat Safety Electric Safety Chemical Safety No laboratory work shall be performed by a student without the direct supervision of the teacher. Read all directions for the experiment at least two times. Never perform any activity that is not authorized or supervised by the teacher or instructor. No eating, drinking or application of cosmetics is allowed in the laboratory. Always wash hands after handling chemicals, plants, animals, or dissection tools. Loose fitting clothing, oversized clothing, coats and long hair may create a potential fire hazard when burners are in use. Hair spray and hair mousse are highly flammable and should not be used in laboratory class or directly before coming to class. First Aid kit location or location of school nurse Severe weather procedures Location and proper use of fire extinguisher, fire blankets, eye wash stations, chemical spill absorbents, chemical showers, etc. Spills are to be cleaned-up as soon as possible. Report all accidents to the teacher immediately. Know what to do in an emergency such as splashing acid on your skin or in your eyes. Protective eye goggles and/or clothing will be required during certain laboratory procedures. Goggles must be worn covering the eyes during all laboratory procedures that involve the use of chemicals, heated materials or dissection. Lab coats or chemical aprons should be worn when working with chemicals or heated materials. Notify your teacher or instructor immediately if you are cut. Always cut away from you, never toward yourself or another person. A soap solution of glycerin or other lubricant should be used on the ends of glass rods or tubing before inserting into a stopper. Glassware should be free of cracks or chipped edges. Laboratory glassware is not to be used for drinking or eating. Never leave a flame or heat source unattended. Whenever heating test tubes or other glassware, be sure the mouth or base is not pointed toward a person. Never reach over an open flame or any other heat source such as a hot plate. Never heat a liquid or a solid which emits a gas when heated, in a closed container. Before handling heated glassware, hold the back side of the hand close to the glassware to check the temperature. Use electronic equipment only on an ungrounded surface. Allow electrical equipment to cool before handling or storing. Always pull the plug, not the wire when disconnecting electrical equipment. Never touch or taste any chemical. Smelling of any chemical should be performed only by gently waving your hand over the opening of the container, directing the fumes toward your nose. Immediately replace all stoppers or lids when you are finished. Use only those chemicals your teacher or instructor indicate are needed for the activity. Mouth pipetting is not allowed under any circumstances. Always pour acids or bases into water -- never the reverse.
