Danger, Danger!!

Hazards in the Laboratory

We were asked to identify some of the hazards we might find in the laboratory. Then, we shared our ideas with the rest of the group, and then we finally discussed it as a class to make the list you see in the image.

Safety Rules

After we discussed the possible hazards in the laboratory, we we asked to make a list of four important safety rules. We then shared those with the other people with the same-colour paper as us to make a list of ten safety rules. These were written on the board:

9A's Safety Rules

  1. No running
  2. No eating or drinking

  5. Don't use things without permission
