Abstract

This chapter describes laboratory safety rules. Some rules are not made to be broken. That is true for the rules used in a biochemistry laboratory. This chapter covers the general guidelines, accidents and injuries, handling chemicals, handling glassware and equipment, heating substances, after experiments, and pipetting techniques. All chemicals in the laboratory are to be considered dangerous. Avoid handling chemicals with fingers. Do not taste, or smell any chemicals. Heated glassware remains very hot for a long time. They should be set aside in a designated place to cool, and picked up with caution, using tongs.
