    It is critical that you prepare for each experiment by reading it carefully before entering the laboratory. Not only will this ensure that you get the maximum benefit of the experience, but it also makes for a safer environment in the laboratory. This is important not only for your own safety but also for those around you. Several policies have been developed in order to make sure that the laboratory is safe and that it runs smoothly.

    In each experiment, specific hazards are indicated by bold type and procedures are described that must be adhered to. In addition, accidents commonly occur when the following rules, as approved by the Chemistry Department Safety Committee, are not followed.
