Goggles should always be worn when chemicals are being heated or mixed. Goggles should be worn as the lab begins and remain on until the last of the lab has been cleaned up off the sink and/or table. Should you get some chemical in your eye, flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes.
Save your nose hairs! WAFT! If you need to smell a chemical to identify it, hold it 6 inches away from the nose and wave your hand over the opening of the container toward your nose. This will “waft” some of the fumes toward your nose without exposing you to a large dose of anything toxic.
Lose the comedy routine! Horseplay can lead to chemical spills, accidental fires, broken glass, and damaged equipment. Never throw anything to another person; be careful where you put your hands and arms; and no wrestling, punching, shoving, or chasing in the lab.
You should always thoroughly read the instructions first, but if you have questions, or if you are not sure how to handle a particular chemical, procedure, or part of an experiment, ask for help. If you do not feel comfortable doing something, then don’t do it. (duh)
