Safety and Equipment

Today we’ll be talking all about the safety rules to follow in the classroom and laboratory and the equipment we’ll be using.

These are the slides for the Lab Equipment talk.  Please be sure to study them, do the matching assignment, and create a set of flash cards.  There is a quiz the next time we meet!

Here is an abbreviated set of notes for you to use to learn the pieces of equipment and study them.

Here’s our safety rules

and our assignment reviewing those rules.

To finish up we saw some safety videos:


We’ll Finish up Safety and Equip this week with a quick assignment on SDSs (formerly MSDS). These are vital pieces of Chemical Safety information which I guarantee your next boss will require you to know about.

We learned the first 10 sections of the MSDS now called the SDS document.  These documents accompany chemicals in a workplace and give vital information to those using the chemicals.

Here’s the Video link to the OSHA Training video

Here’s the OSHA Reading, The SDS Prep Assignment (worth points), and the handy dandy guide document.

If we finish with the assignment we can start introducing the Metric System by the end of the day.
