The interactive lab primer - working safely


The chemistry laboratory is full of hazards and it is your responsibility to work safely for your own well-being and for the well-being of others. Use this resource to understand the basic rules and procedures that should be followed to minimise any risks.




The interactive lab primer was developed as part of the 'Chemistry for our future'  Royal Society of Chemistry Teacher Fellowship Scheme. With contributions from Prof. David Read (the University of Southampton), Mr David Brentnall (The University of Nottingham), Dr Sandy Wilkinson (the University of Birmingham) and Mr William Davey (The University of Sheffield)
