2: Teachers should read the directions of the lab with the students and answer any questions they have before starting. Also, they need to be closely monitoring the students to make sure they are on task and not playing around with harmful chemicals.
4: Students should always wear protective clothing during lab to keep them safe from any spills or accidents. They should wear goggles, aprons, and closed toed shoes.
5: Students should know the proper way to handle all of the equipment used in the lab. All accidents or spills should be reported to the teacher immediately.
6: Students should never smell chemicals directly, but should waft them with their hand. In case of emergencies they should know the location of the fire extinguisher and wash station.
7: When the lab is finished, make sure to dispose of chemicals properly. Remember to always wash your hands when you are finished with the lab and wipe down your table.
