Sharps Broken glass, razor blades, syringes and needles are to be disposed of in the appropriate containers, i.e. broken glass boxes and sharps containers. DO NOT PUT ANYTHING SHARP IN THE WASTE BASKETS!
Chemical Waste DO NOT POUR ANY WASTE CHEMICALS DOWN THE SINK! Place used or waste chemicals in properly labeled chemical waste containers.
Animal Waste Place all animal waste in clear plastic bags labeled ‘ANIMAL WASTE FROM BIOL ____; ANIMAL TYPE________________________.’ take the bags to stock room. Do not allow discarded animal specimens to accumulate in teaching laboratories.
At the end of each semester, the lab instructor's are required to attend the final lab inspection. The inspection includes:
- returning equipment and unused items to the stock room
- organizing lab supplies
- cleaning microscopes
- cleaning hot water baths
- cleaning refrigerators
- dust and clean electronics
- scrubbing all counter tops
- returning the textbooks and keys
We will use our normal lab instructor meeting during finals week for this lab inspection.
