Summary
This manual is designed to progressively teach students the skills and knowledge they need to learn their science and stay safe while working in any lab. This principles based approach treats lab safety as a distinct, essential discipline of chemistry, enabling instructors to instill and sustain a culture of safety among students. As students progress through the text, they will learn about laboratory and chemical hazards, about routes of exposure, and about ways to manage these hazards
