A lab, or laboratory, is any setting that is designed for scientific experiments, research, or teaching. These areas contain various chemicals and equipment that can be extremely dangerous if they are not handled properly. Therefore, it is important for all persons operating the lab to know general safety procedures before engaging in any scientific work. In science classrooms, it is your science teacher’s professional duty to ensure that all students are aware of and following the safety procedures at all times.
