High School Lab Safety

  • All experiments should be conducted under the supervision of a teacher to ensure the lab safety regulations in the high school.
  • Equipment from the lab should be taken only after the teacher’s explanation, a complete comprehension of what is required in the experiment, and receiving permission from the teacher, in order to keep your safety.
  • When heating materials or tools, you have to hold them with the appropriate holder, made from materials that have a low heat conduction factor.
  • Students should not smell any chemical materials, as inhaling these materials can cause significant damage.
  • Never mix different materials, unless given explicit instructions to do so by your high school lab supervisor. When mixing materials, you must wear safety goggles, especially when dealing with biology lab safety procedures.
  • When you are boiling a liquid material in a test tube, the liquid must be directed to the opening of the tube so that the material will not be sputtered in case of extreme boiling. In any case you must wear safety goggles to protect your face. Please note that this is the safety glasses policy and you must adhere to it.
  • Students with long hair should always collect their hair and cover their faces with safety goggles. Please note that this is the safety glasses policy and you must adhere to it.
  • The students should not taste any of the materials in the lab. This is against the high school lab safety regulations, and might result in severe damages.
  • Never touch any chemicals with your hands. Lab safety protocols dictate that you use tools such as a spatula, spoon, tweezers etc
  • Lighting the gas burner will be done only by the high school teacher or lab assistant. Once finished, alcohol burner should be turned off immediately after heating. In any case you should not leave alcoholic burning.
