                                                                        Section:    55244 4 Units
                                                                 Class Location:    UVC1 St. Helena
                                                                   Days / Time:     F 9:00 AM – 3:50 PM
                                                                      Instructor:   RIDDELL


     College regulations prohibit eating or drinking at laboratory tables. If you wish to bring food/drink to
      lab, it must be stored in a designated “clean” area and eaten outside the lab (i.e. during a short break
      in the hall).

     Wash hands before and after working in the lab. Wear gloves as needed.

     Turn off the Bunsen burner when you are not using it.

     If any hazardous reagents are spilled, notify your instructor at once.

     Before obtaining any reagents, carefully read the labels on the bottles twice. Many chemicals have
      similar names. Never return unused chemicals to the original dispensing bottle.

     Follow the instructor’s directions for disposal of chemicals. When no specific directions are given,
      dispose of non-hazardous, water-soluble substances in the sink, and put insoluble materials such as
      filter paper in the wastebasket.

     Perform only the experiment assigned; do not experiment on your own. No unauthorized
      experiments are allowed.

     Every chemical in a laboratory must be properly labeled. Many chemicals have similar names and
      you should read the name twice. If a chemical is a solution, the concentration will also appear on the
      label. Solution concentration is commonly described by molarity (e.g., 6M HCl) or by percent
      concentration (e.g., 0.9% NaCl).

     Use the proper instrument (eye-dropper, scoopula, etc.) to remove reagents from bottles. Do not
      cross contaminate reagents by using the same scoopula for 2 different reagents. E.g. don’t use the
      mustard knife in the mayonnaise jar, and vice versa!

     All biohazardous materials are to be disposed of in the special biohazard receptacle.

     All biohazardous spills are to be reported to the instructor or to the instructional assistant and are to
      be cleaned up using disinfectant and disposed of properly.

     All injuries are to be reported to the instructor or to the instructional assistant immediately, and the
      injured student is required to follow up with appropriate information to the NVC Health Care Center.
