Abstract
This student guide to chemical hazards discussed several areas of concern for the chemistry student. The guide presents a chemical hygiene plan which involves standard operating procedures to ensure student safety, including the use of personal protective equipment, safe work practices, proper labeling of materials, and understanding material safety data sheets. The Hazard Communication Standard, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), and the Laboratory Standard were discussed. Also covered were how to use emergency equipment; understanding the differences between chronic and acute toxicity; local, systemic and synergistic effects; routes of exposure such as skin and eye contact, inhalation, ingestion and injection; and exposure limits.
