PRESENTATIONS AND DOCUMENTS

  • First class day presentation – Biology
    • Lab Safety GA original.ppt
    • Lab Safety GA original.pdf
    • This PowerPoint is to be presented the first lab day to all Biology students and to all students who add the class after the first day.  If there is information in this presentation that does not pertain to your class, for example how to place a scalpel blade on a scalpel when you do not use scalpels, simply do not go over that section.  However, do not skip anything because you think they SHOULD already know the information.  Refresh their memory by going over it anyway.
    • If there is information you routinely go over with the student that is not in the PowerPoint presentation, contact Tammy White in the Department of Safety & Risk Management to get it added for future classes.
  • First class day presentation – Chemistry (See Chemical Lab Safety Exam below)
    • This information is to be presented the first lab day to all Chemistry students and to all students who add the class after the first day.  Do not skip anything because you think they SHOULD already know the information.  Refresh their memory by going over it anyway.

FORMS

  • Safety Contract.pdf – ALL STUDENTS
    • Read this information out loud to all of the students in lab.  Have them fill in all the blanks.  The first two pages, or the front & back page, is for the student to keep.  The last page is the actual contract that you collect from the students before the end of lab.  Once you have all the signed contracts check them off of your roster to make sure you have them all.  For the second lab day any student who adds the class, have them do the same and check them off your roster.  Turn the contracts and a copy of your roster into the Administrative Assistant.  Follow this procedure until you have all the contracts checked off your roster and all the contracts (with the most recent roster) turned in.
  • Chemical Laboratory Safety Examination.pdf – Chemistry
    • Make sure that all chemistry students take and pass this exam before they are let into the lab again the next week (as with the contract).  They may take it as many times as they need in order to make a 100%.
    • If you have questions that you believe need to be added to this exam please contact Tammy White in the Department of Safety & Risk Management.
