Lab Safety Lesson 4: Chemical Hazards

Lab Safety Lesson 4: Chemical Hazards

Many of the chemicals we use in the lab are potentially dangerous, especially under high heat, pressure, or when they're mixed with other chemicals. In this lesson, we'll learn about the 2 most important tools to identify chemical hazards:
• Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
• Chemical Labels
