SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR STUDENTS - GOGGLES You must wear SAFETY GOGGLES at all times while doing experiments. It is a legal requirement of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that eye protection be worn in university teaching and research laboratories. FOR YOUR SAFETY, the Chemistry Department Safety Committee has issued the following rules for the Undergraduate Teaching Labs.
ALL STUDENTS, TEACHING ASSISTANTS AND INSTRUCTORS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR APPROVED SAFETY EYEWEAR AT ALL TIMES WHEN THEY ARE IN THE BENCH TOP REGION OF THE LABORATORY.
THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.
Snugly fitting splash proof safety goggles are required. Do not wear contact lenses even with safety goggles. Any undergraduate student not in compliance with this rule will first receive a verbal warning from the laboratory instructor. After a second offense on that day, the lab instructor will deduct 50% of the lab report grade (4 points) from the grade for that day’s lab report. Any student receiving a third warning during the same period of lab will be dismissed from that lab and will receive a grade of zero for that lab report. The lab coordinator and the student’s lecture professor will be informed. Any student dismissed from a second laboratory that semester for violation of the eye safety policy will meet with their professor to determine if additional action, such as a grade of F for the lab course or dismissal from the course, is appropriate. Any additional violations of this policy or other safety procedures will result in a grade of F for the course.
