Outline
• Lab safety.

   • Fire extinguisher types and locations (four in lab).
   • Safety standards organizations (ANSI, NFPA, etc.).
• Gantt charts.
   • Project management triangle.
   • Gantt charts.
   • Microsoft project.
MSDS Sheets
• Written differently by different companies but should

• Generally conservative.
• Often need interpretation by qualified professionals
  (you).
Origins of Safety Rules
• Desire to protect yourself and colleagues from undue
  hazards.
