These are basic posters designed to be printed on colored paper. They are in a Word File and can easily be adapted to your own school/district wording.
Some rules are split into multiple posters. The following lab safety rules are included.
1. Do not eat, chew gum, drink, smoke, or apply makeup in the lab.
2. Do not taste, smell, or touch any chemicals without the permission of the instructor.
3. All chemicals in the lab should be treated as dangerous.
4. Dress appropriately for lab days. Wear closed toe shoes (no flip-flops or sandals). No loose or baggy clothing. No dangling jewelry. Long hair should be put up.
5. Wear safety goggles at all times. Prescription glasses are not a substitute and contact lenses are not recommended.
6. Notify the instructor of all spills or accidents immediately. Do not attempt to clean up a spill or broken equipment without first getting the permission of the instructor.
7. Dispose of all waste materials properly. Do not put unused chemicals back in their container.
8. You may only conduct approved experiments, those which have been authorized by the instructor.
9. Be sure to pick up any heated materials and containers with tongs, not your bare hands. Do not point heated containers such as test tubes or flasks at anyone.
10. Do not remove any materials or supplies from the lab without permission. This includes equipment, chemicals, dissection specimens and dissection parts. In other words, if you didn’t bring it into the lab, don’t bring it out!
11. Do not ever work in the lab alone.
12. Before an experiment read all of the lab materials. If you do not understand something, talk to the instructor before proceeding. Inspect all of your equipment for anything that is chipped or broken.
13. If you are burned, injured, or spill chemicals on yourself tell the instructor immediately!
14. Be sure to keep your lab area neat and tidy. Only lab supplies and your lab notebook should be out. Leave all backpacks, purses, coats, etc. in the classroom (it will be locked!) If you are to use lab stools they will already be at the stations.
15. Be responsible for your experiment and stay close to your station. Never leave an experiment unattended!
