Before conducting scientific experiments, you must view the video on “Lab Safety for Schools.” Particularly in areas such as laboratories and kitchens it is important to learn to use fire extinguishers, and how to respond in emergency situations.

All accidents, incidents or near misses should be immediately reported to the dean or chair of your department. The accident form (HSE 1) will be filled out by the person reporting the accident, and (HSE 2) will be filled out by the Dean or Chair.
