In the microbiological laboratory there are many hazards; however, most problems and accidents can be prevented by following the rules, being prepared for lab, and by thinking about what you are doing. Always behave thoughtfully and with consideration for others' safety.
Please notify your instructor if you are pregnant, are taking immunosuppressive drugs, or if you have a medical condition that may require special precautions. If you are unsure about your specific medical condition and particular medical hazards it may cause, please consult your physician.
Make sure to read the laboratory exercise before class and plan your work. This creates awareness of the special safety concerns for the laboratory class and permits efficient use of class time.
