Safety Goggles
Lab Apron
A lab apron is used to protect your skin and clothing from damage such as: cuts, spills, splatters, and etc....
Heat Resistant Gloves/Plastic Gloves
Heat resistant gloves will protect your hands from being burned from hot materials.
Plastic gloves will protect your hands /skin from any harsh chemicals, or dangerous objects.
When dealing with a heat- related experiment, you want to wear heat resistant gloves, tie back any loose hair or clothing from severe damage, and you want to use tongs or clamps to pick up your hot materials. Also, make sure there are no other flames or any other heat sources present that are unattended.
Sharp Objects
Sharp objects can be super harmful to you and others around you. Materials such as: scissors, knives, needles, or any sharp objects should be pointed away from others and yourself .
Animal Safety/ Plant Safety
Heating Cautions
Safety goggles are very important during an experiment. The safety goggles are there to protect your eyes and the area around your eyes as well. You should always wear safety goggles during an experiment unless you are directed by a teacher that you do not need them.
Make sure to do this after all experiments
Poisonous Chemicals

Just like corrosive chemicals, you want to keep the poisonous chemicals away from the eyes, skin, and clothing. Do not inhale the chemical fumes , and make sure to wash your hands with soap and rinse thorouhgly with water.
Make sure to do this after all experiments.
Corrosive Chemicals

When dealing with corrosive chemicals, be careful not to splatter any on your skin, inhale it, or drink it. Make sure to keep these chemicals away from your face and skin. Wash your hands with soap and rinse thoroughly with water.

Fumes can be very dangerous to work with because they can cause very harmful effects to you and others around, so be sure to work in a ventilated area. Also, it is highly encoraged that you do not directly inhale the fumes. Instead, ask a teacher and then carefully move your hand in a wafting motion to have the vapor come towards you if you need to test an odor. As always, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly.
Make sure to do this at the end of every experiment.
Hand Washing
Hand washing is probably one of the most important things to do after an experiment. You want to wash your hands so they can be cleaned from the experiment you did earlier. Be sure to rinse your hands thoroughly with water and soap.

Electric Shock
To avoid having an electric shock, you should keep ANY type of liquid AWAY from electrical equipment.You also want to make sure your hands are dry, and that there are no cords tangled up or plugged in if it's not being used.

Before you dispose any- thing, you want to ask a teacher first because some things may not always be necessary to dispose/ throw away.
Animal safety is very important. Treat all animals with respect and care, so there will be no harm done towards the animal, yourself , and others around you.
Plant safety is as important as animal safety because you should still treat both with respect and care. Also, do not touch any plants that can give you an allergic reaction. If you are allergic to something, tell an adult before you do aything else. Washing your hands after an experient like this is very crucial, so make sure you do it.
I found all of my information in my

science textbook, called "Georgia Earth Science", on the first page titled,"Safety Symbols". I also recieved all of my images from the clip art options on Www.prezi.com.
General Safety Awareness
General safety awarness means to follow the directions that are provided, and to check with an adult for permission to do a special project when you see this symbol.
Physical Safety
To make sure you are physically safe, make sure to be careful with an experiment that involves some sort of physical activity. Tell an adult if there is a problem with the activity.
