Laboratory Basics
Laboratory Basics
• Check location of emergency equipment
and learn to operate it correctly (eye
fountains, fire blankets, showers, fire
extinguishers, fire escapes, telephones)
• Be prepared for emergency situations
• Have a thorough knowledge of the
basic char acteristics and potential
dangers of all the chemicals you
work with
• Read Material Safety Data Sheets
(MSDS)
• Consult Merck Index (popular
chemical encyclopedia) for info
• Wear eye protection at all times
• Do not wear contact lenses in
the laboratory because lens material
may react with chemical vapors
and cause serious eye damage
• Wear a lab coat and ensure that
your feet are adequately protected
• Tie or secure long hair
• Never bring food or beverages into
the laboratory
• Do not eat, drink, or smoke in the
laboratory
• Do not use laboratory equipment for
eating, drinking, or personal hygiene
• Never work alone
• Be sure that someone is always
within earshot and knows that you
are in the laboratory
• Never perform an unauthorized
experiment
• Beware of hot objects; hot glass
looks just like cold glass
• Use heat resistant gloves or
mittens when handling hot objects
• Do not force glass tubing through
hole in a stopper
• Wet tubing and hole with soapy
water; proceed with caution
• Hold glass tubing close to hole and
insert it slowly without excess force
• Wear gloves where possible
• Use a fumehood whenever an
experimental proce dure makes it
necessary
• Ensure that the fumehood is
operating properly by testing the
air flow with a light piece of paper
or thread
• Most laboratories do not permit
flushing of dangerous solutions
(heavy metal ions, corrosive,
reactive or organic materials)
down drain
• Follow appropriate waste-chemical
disposal policies as provided by the institution
