The department endeavors to maintain a laboratory environment that is safe for you and all other individuals working in the lab. Students are expected to both learn and follow the general safety guidelines that are provided during the initial meetings of the class. Those who fail to follow these rules may be asked to leave the lab and/or suffer grade penalties. Students enrolling in general chemistry laboratories will be provided, at no additional charge, one pair of safety goggles. In addition to wearing goggles, it is imperative that all laboratory personnel wear appropriate attire, conduct themselves responsibly, and learn proper techniques for the safe handling of chemicals and equipment. Safety is our most important laboratory function!
