Dear wbgen and wbgaas users:
just a few reminders:
-Before you start using the wet benches, place all dried beakers and
labware on the appropriate shelf.
-Enable the bench.
-Always use transfer carts to transport chemicals; chemicals must never
be hand-carried in the lab.
-Every beaker or open container containing any chemical must have a
"In-use Hazardous Chemical" tag with it. Fill the tag out before you
pour chemicals in a beaker. Use complete chemical names on the tag (no
chemical formulas, no abbreviations, no BOE, KOH or "piranha").
- When working with chemicals, safety glasses, face shield, yellow
chemical resistant Nitril gloves over latex gloves and chemicals apron
should be worn.
-Place the chemicals far enough under the hood to prevent fumes from
escaping into the lab.
-Leave the benchtop clean and dry! Thoroughly rinse off any drips with
the DI hand sprayer and dry with the N2 gun.
-Log the approximate amount and composition of chemicals drained on the
station log sheet, located on the left side of the bench.
and once in a while, check out the operating instructions:
Please help me keeping the wet benches clean and safe!
