STUDY GUIDE & PRACTICE QUESTIONS STUDY GUIDE & PRACTICE QUESTIONS for Undergraduate Laboratory Safety Exam Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry University of California, San Diego INTRODUCTION ALL students in introductory chemistry lab classes (Chemistry 6BL, 100A, 143A and 143AM) are required to demonstrate an understanding of general laboratory safety and familiarity with the UCSD Undergraduate Chemistry Lab Rules. A LAB SAFETY EXAM is given during the regularly scheduled lab periods within the first two weeks of class. A passing score on the quiz fulfills this requirement. Students who FAIL to demonstrate an understanding of general laboratory safety and familiarity with the UCSD Undergraduate Chemistry Lab Rules may be dropped from the course with a grade of "W." This Study Guide is presented in response to the request of students. It must be considered a work in progress; we expect errors and omissions will be found and we hope to update & improving the Guide in coming terms. Please contact us with your corrections and suggestions, either for additional topics or for study questions. This Guide can only be an introduction to the study of laboratory safety and hazardous materials management. We hope it gives students a chance to connect their chemical studies and lab exercises with an assessment of chemical & physical hazards and with the logic of recommended safety protocols. As safety professionals, we hope that our students will carry with them – to work and to home – a culture of safety and an ability to apply what they learn to the management and storage of hazardous materials in a variety of settings.
