Lesson 2: Exit Task

In your Knowledge Book page 5: 

Write THREE safety rules that were new to you.

How can we protect ourselves and others from harm?

Science classrooms are not like any other class at Massey High School. We call the class rooms LABORATORIES (often "labs" for short) and they have some special rules that keep everyone safe. There are also pieces of safety equipment that are unique to labs.

The lab rules are:

The lab also has a fire extinguisher, fire blanket, sand bucket, eye wash and safety glasses. If you follow the rules and instructions given to you by your teacher a fire will not occur. However, if there is a fire a FIRE EXTINGUISHER and/or FIRE BLANKET can be used to put it out. SAND BUCKETS are where used matches are put. 

If some types of chemicals get in your eyes the EYE WASH can be used to flush them out. Your teacher will show you what to do. However, if you wear SAFETY GLASSES this should not be needed.
