The University safety policy, devised by Occupational Health and Safety, mandates “maximal skin coverage” for all laboratory personnel, including students. Ankle-length pants and socks that cover the ankle are required. No shorts or capris are permitted. Exposed midriffs are not allowed. Long hair must be tied back. Shoes must completely cover your feet: toes, sides, heel and the entire upper foot. Running shoes are generally acceptable. Sandals, open-toed shoes, ballerina shoes, open-top shoes, and shoes with cut-outs or openings are not acceptable.
Safety glasses will be provided. Make sure you wear safety glasses at all times in the laboratory.
Read and understand all instructions prior to starting the procedure. If you do not understand anything ask the supervisor.
If you spill any materials or break glassware contact the supervisor before attempting a cleanup.
Do not carry out unauthorized experiments.
