Health and Safety

Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry Safety Philosophy

While providing for the best chemical and biochemical educational program, it is the responsibility of the Department to ensure that our educational programs and other activities protect and promote the health and safety of our students, our faculty, and staff, and the environment.

No lesson is so important and no task or project so urgent that we cannot take time to teach chemistry and biochemistry safely.

Teaching chemistry and biochemistry safely means that before you do an experiment, demonstration, or activity

  • you know the hazards
  • you know the worst things that could happen
  • you know what to do and how to do it if they should happen
  • you know and use the prudent practices, protective facilities,
  • and protective equipment needed to minimize the risks.
