Chemical Safety

From the first year of Chemistry study, students work in laboratories, so they must learn the appropriate safety protocols and procedures when working with chemicals and scientific equipment. These include always wearing a lab coat and safety glasses, and if relevant, putting your hair up, when in a laboratory.

Information about how to work with chemicals safely is available below. Note that some of these are PDFs and require Adobe Acrobat to view. If you don’t have Adobe Acrobat, you can get it here.
