Safety Rules

1. Always wear safety goggles.

Working in the lab, it's very important to wear goggles. Prescription glasses don't protect your eye as well as the safety goggles do. Safety goggles can prevent damage to your vision in case substances get splashed up to your face.

2. Never eat or drink any of the substances.

These substances in a science lab can be very harmful. You don't know what these substances have in them, and chemicals could be very dangerous!

3. Wear shoes that cover your toes.

If a beaker or a test tube drops out of your hand and lands on your foot, you don't want it to cut your foot. Wearing shoes that cover your toes, prevents severe injuries.

4. Report to teacher if you have a cut.

If you get cut, report it to a teacher so they can make note of it within the first 24 hours. If you have to go to the hospital, the school's insurance will cover it so you don't have to pay the bill.

5. Keep science materials away from the edge of the table.

If you have materials at the edge of the counter, it is very easy for them to get knocked off. This could lead to an injury which we don't want.
