Physics Lab Safety Information
(Write this stuff down, you are taking a test over it next class period!)
Prepare for the lab activity or experiment by reading it over first. Ask questions about anything that is unclear to you. Note any cautions that are stated.
Dress appropriately for a laboratory. Avoid wearing bulky or loose fitting clothes or dangling jewelry. Pin or tie back long hair and roll up loose sleeves.
Use the apparatus only as instructed in the manual or by your teacher. If you wish to try an alternate procedure, obtain your teacher’s approval first.
Do not touch anything that may be hot including: burners, hot plates, rings, beakers, electric immersion heaters, and electric bulbs. If you must pick up something that is hot, use a damp paper towel, a pot holder, or some other appropriate holder.
When you have finished your work, check that the water and gas are turned off and that electric circuits are disconnected. Return all materials to the designated places. Clean the work area.
If cut is minor, allow to bleed briefly and wash with soap and water.
If bleeding is severe, apply pressure or a compress directly to the cut and get medical attention.
