In order for the experiment to be carried out safely and efficiently, one must have a workplan.

Prescribed Personnel Protective Equipment - Safety laboratory goggles - Laboratory gown - Face mask - Closed Shoes

Immediately report to your lab instructor any: - Major spills, breakage and accident - Physical injuries sustained during the experiment - All the near-miss incident

Safety Rules: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Wear Prescribed PPE Keep food, drinks and gum out of the laboratory No smoking Never work alone. Do not perform unauthorized experiments No loitering Do not remove chemicals from stockroom and laboratory Do not leave an on-going set-up unattended Do not leave a lighted Bunsen burner unattended Read the labels Handle all chemicals with extreme caution o know the hazards and the physical and chemical properties o Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) and know where to find hazards, correct disposal, immediate cure and toxicology - Most of the chemicals are corrosive. Concentrated acid must only be used under the fume hood. - Treat all chemicals as potentially dangerous.

- Take extra care in handling chemicals in fine dust or powdered form. 12. Be orderly and dispose of laboratory waste properly Cleanliness in the Laboratory: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Avoid doing anything that will lead to the contamination of reagent. Practice the habit of rinsing the rod dropper immediately after use. Avoid accumulating dirty glassware. Always wash or wipe off any dirt from reagent containers. Clean up spills even if it is only water, immediately. Wash your hands thoroughly and dry them with a clean towel before going out of the laboratory.

Proper disposal of laboratory waste 1. Inorganic wastes. Labeled jars are present in laboratory rooms. Concentrated acids and bases can cause clogging of sinks and premature corrosion of pipes. Waste and excess of Potassium Permanganate is a powerful oxidant that can corrode sinks. 2. Organic wastes. Toluene, for example, must be thrown to appropriate jars. Fire Safety 1. Fires in small containers can be extinguished by inverting a small beaker over the burning container. Alternatively, cover the burning container with a soaking wet towel. Never use dried towel. 2. Remove any flammable materials such as chemical reagent that contains flammable chemicals from the area of the fire. 3. In case a person inhaled a toxic fume or smoke, transfer her to a well-ventilated area. 4. In case your clothing catches a fire, use the safety shower.
