    Always use safety goggles, make sure there's a working emergency eyewash station, be careful not to mix chemicals that have a negative reaction when mixed together, when using a flame make sure nothing gets caught in the flame and also make sure there's a working fire extinguisher in the lab, make sure everyone in the lab only whispers when they speak because a science lab should be a quiet place with NO chaos, so nobody can horseplay or mess around, so that also means no running and also everyone needs to be at their designated table and not crowd one particular area.

    General Guidelines
    1. Conduct yourself in a responsible manner at all times in the laboratory.
    2. Be familiar with your lab assignment before you come to lab.  Follow all written and verbal instructions carefully. If you do not understand a direction or part of a procedure, ask the teacher before proceeding.
    3. Never work alone. No student may work in the laboratory without an instructor present.
    4. When first entering a science room, do not touch any equipment, chemicals, or other materials in the laboratory area until you are instructed to do so.
    5. Do not eat food, drink beverages, or chew gum in the laboratory. Do not use laboratory glassware as containers for food or beverages.
    6. Perform only those experiments authorized by the instructor. Never do anything in the laboratory that is not called for in the laboratory procedures or by your instructor. Carefully follow all instructions, both written and oral. Unauthorized experiments are prohibited. 
    7. Safety goggles and aprons must be worn whenever you work in lab.  Gloves should be worn whenever you use chemicals that cause skin irritations or need to handle hot equipment.  Wear older clothes that cover the maximum amount of skin. 
    8. Observe good housekeeping practices. Work areas should be kept clean and tidy at all times. Bring only your laboratory instructions, worksheets, and/or reports to the work area. Other materials (books, purses, backpacks, etc.) should be stored in the classroom area.
    9. Know the locations and operating procedures of all safety equipment including the first aid kit, eyewash station, safety shower, spill kit, fire extinguisher, and fire blanket. Know where the fire alarm and the exits are located. 
    10. Be alert and proceed with caution at all times in the laboratory. Notify the instructor immediately of any unsafe conditions you observe.
    11. Dispose of all chemical waste properly. Never mix chemicals in sink drains. Sinks are to be used only for water and those solutions designated by the instructor. Solid chemicals, metals, matches, filter paper, and all other insoluble materials are to be disposed of in the proper waste containers, not in the sink. Check the label of all waste containers twice before adding your chemical waste to the container.  Cracked or broken glass should be placed in the special container for “Broken Glass.”

    1. keep your safety gear on AT ALL TIMES.
    2. No eating or drinking AT ANYTIME..
    3. Assemble ALl materials before starting the experiment.
    4. Pour bases into acids (SLOWLY).
    5.Make sure bunson burners are secured-and use beaker stands at all times.
    6. pour chemicals under a vent hood when possible
    7. NO HORSEPLAY- (shouldn't have any horses in lab anyway!!!)
    8.When pouring chemicals always pour slowly.
    9. No Running or pushing shoving etc.
    10.If a glass breaks and there is a small spill -call a supervisor/teacher and make them aware - do not touch broken glass or spilled liquid.
    11.Wear gloves when needed.
