The most common safety equipment found in a laboratory is so well-known that many people forget about it. While you may have the majority of these items, do you really have enough? Maybe you've forgotten about some items. You might not use a certain item until later in the lab when your focus shifts or new tasks require it. These are just a few reasons why we may overlook common items. Let's review some of the most important lab equipment for safety, to refresh our memories and make sure we're ready for success. Safety goggles are most commonly used to protect the eyes. Mishandled chemicals can cause severe burns and even death to the eyes. Even though chemicals are well administered and properly managed, there's still the possibility of injury to the eye. You might drop glass tools and equipment, or have something fall on your eye. Without this best practice, you risk tearing a cornea, eye infections/irritations, vision impairment, and in the worst cases, blindness. Safety goggles are essential for handling chemicals. Every laboratory should have plenty of them. Accidents can still happen, so safety goggles should always be worn. A quick and effective way to treat an eye injury is to use the eyewash station. Safety showers can be used in situations where corrosive or damaging chemicals are not only on your face but also other parts of your body. These are used to cleanse the whole body of liquids that could cause serious harm and can be more harmful than a single splash. You must remove all clothing before you use a safety shower. Latex gloves are ideal for working with bodily fluids, sensitive chemical, or anything that will not burn you. This prevents you from infecting any specimens and also helps to protect yourself. Although it may seem redundant, a lab coat serves an important purpose. It protects your clothes and protects you from any caustic substances that might accidentally be spilled. Most laboratories have some form of restrictions on clothing that exposes your skin (e.g., open-toe shoes). After all clothing requirements have been met, the lab coat provides additional protection. It is crucial to dispose of waste properly, as much of the material in a laboratory can't be thrown in regular trash bags. The standard orange biohazard waste containers must be easily located around the laboratory in areas where disposal might occur. You should clearly label them with the contents.
