Page 1 of 2 ver. 1.6 Laboratory Safety Many of the reagents (chemicals) and some equipment in a biology laboratory are potentially dangerous. Following rules of laboratory safety and using common sense throughout the course will enhance the learning experience by increasing the student’s confidence in his or her ability to use chemicals and equipment safely. The following rules of laboratory safety should not simply be memorized, but rather they should become habits. 1. Wear safety glasses or goggles during exercises in which glassware and solutions are heated, or during which dangerous fumes may be present, creating possible hazard to eyes, or contact lenses. 2. Assume that all reagents are poisonous and act accordingly. Read labels on chemical bottles for safety precautions and know the nature of the chemical you are using. Your instructor will inform you of potentially dangerous materials and will give instructions as to their safe handling. If chemicals come into contact with skin, wash immediately with water.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
