Wear appropriate protective clothing

• Lab aprons can be used to protect good clothing and you

• Loose clothing should not be worn because it may dip into chemicals or fall into a flame and catch fire

Do not smell any chemicals directly!

• Smell chemicals only if your teacher specifically tells you to do so, then use your hand to fan the vapor to your nose.

Wash your hands with soap and water before leaving.

• This rule applies even if you have been wearing gloves!

Tie Back Loose Hair

• Dangling hair can fall into the Bunsen burner and catch fire or can fall into a chemical solution

• P.S. Burning hair REALLY STINKS!

Careless behavior may endanger yourself and others and will not be tolerated!
