  • Understanding Laboratory Equipment


Chemical Hazards

  • Corrosives

  • Asphyxiants

  • Oxidizers

  • Alkalis


Chemical Exposure

  • Inhalation

  • Ingestion

  • Injection

  • Absorption


Chemical Exposure


How can you avoid exposure?


How can you avoid exposure?

  • Hands?

  • Eyes?

  • Clothes?

  • Face?


How can you avoid exposure?

  • Procedurally

    • Use small amounts of chemicals

    • Follow directions exactly

    • Make sure equipment is not broken

    • Be aware of NFPA diamond information

    • Look up information on MSDS


What if you are exposed to chemicals?


What if you are exposed to chemicals?

  • Hands?

  • Eyes?

  • Whole body?

  • Ingested?

  • Inhaled?


Shower and Eyewash

Prevention is better than cure

  • OSHA – Occupational Safety and Health Administration

  • NFPA diamond

  • MSDS – Material Safety Data Sheets


Reading a NFPA diamond

  • Blue is for level of Health Hazard

  • Red is for level of Flammability

  • Yellow is for level of Chemical Reactivity

  • White is for special codes for unique hazards


Reading a NFPA diamond

  • The blue, red and yellow portions will rate he hazard from 0 to 4 with 4 being the most dangerous.

  • The white “special notification” symbols include OX for oxidizer, W to symbolize an unusual or dangerous reaction with water or SA to signify Simple Asphyxiant gas


Which would be more dangerous?
