Lab Safety

The chemistry laboratory includes hazards and risks. Work in the lab can involve the use of corrosive and toxic chemicals, flammable solvents, and equipment that can cause injury. Whether taking a lab course or working on a research project, students are expected to be familiar with and conscientiously abide by these established safety practices and procedures.
