Only two uncovered cadavers may be exposed during any lab session. The ventilation  system can only accommodate two gurneys. 2. Check to make sure ventilation hoods are “ON” before starting work. Do NOT unzip or  open cadaver or specimen bags for a class if you don’t think the hoods are working. 3. Keep cadavers covered in zipped body bags when they are not being studied. 4. Do not eat, drink, apply lip balm, or touch your face while in the Anatomy Lab. 5. Wear examination gloves when handling specimens, cadavers, or waste material. 6. Change gloves when damaged and periodically as needed. 7. Wear eye protection when working with cadavers and preserved specimens. 8. Wear a lab coat or scrubs when doing dissections to protect your clothes. For significant  splash hazards, wear an apron over the lab coat. 9. Dispose of all scalpel blades and other sharps in red “SHARPS” containers. 10. Wash hands and any exposed skin immediately on contact with embalming fluid and  before leaving the dissection area. 11. All waste containers must be kept closed when not actively being filled. Do not overfill. 12. Report injuries or problems to the laboratory supervisor as soon as possible.  III.
