Laboratory Safety should come naturally and become your habit. Remember you are responsible for your own safety as well as safety of others working around you. A laboratory poses potential risks due to exposure to corrosive and toxic materials, flammable solvents, high pressure gases, explosive chemicals and dangerous microbes. A little care and adherence to prescribed safety guidelines will help avoid laboratory mishaps.
Laboratory hazards should not scare you as a laboratory career can be both challenging and exciting because you get an opportunity to explore the mysteries of atoms and molecules and study materials having different commercial applications.
