Knowing your warning symbols is extremely important because if you don't, dangers may occur. Some symbols may be telling you that the substance is hazardous and to be very careful with it. You will come across lots of symbols that will show the substance is hazardous and if you don't know what it means you may put yourself and others around you in danger. Learn to recognize warning symbols Following the teachers instructions is always very important to do. They know what you are supposed to do and if you do not listen to them or decide to do something else, it may effect the end result of your experiment or could be potentially dangerous. Follow the teachers instructions Sometimes while doing experiments you are dealing with harmful substances and you need to wash your hands after or you could end up with parts of the substances on your hands. Later you might forget about dealing with hazardous substances and touch your face or mouth and end up ingesting the substances which could be harmful to your body. Wash your hands after every experiment In the science lab we may be exposed to lots of flammable chemicals. It it very possible that a fire could start and you can't rely on other people to know where the safety equipment is. Even if you don't think a fire will happen to you, it could and you need to be prepared. Know the location of the nearest fire extinguishers and other safety equipment Make sure to wash your hands after each experiment and use these tips to make sure you get all the harmful chemicals off your hands. Make sure you wash your hands RIGHT after you finish dealing with harmful substances. You may not notice but you will most likely touch your eyes or mouth, which could lead to you getting sick.
