Safety Training




Working Safely with Chemicals in the Laboratory

The book was created to help college and university general chemistry students understand the hazards of dangerous chemicals and the myriad governmental regulations covering their use, storage and disposal. It addresses all of the critical environmental, health, and safety issues that today's students need to be aware of, including:

  • How laboratory chemicals can hurt students
  • How laboratory chemicals can harm the environment
  • Hazards associated with frequently-used laboratory equipment
  • Proper laboratory protocol
  • Avoiding hazards in the laboratory

The book is narrated by Genium's hazmat character, Hugh B. Kareful, who represents a drop of the hazardous materials used in your labs. Your students will love his great sense of humor. Meanwhile they'll be learning some important safety lessons.

Special features include short quizzes at the end of each chapter. You'll also find 90 hazard profiles that help students learn about a chemical's potential hazards before they start working with it. A comprehensive glossary of terms and abbreviations is also included.

A separate Instructor's Manual helps teachers incorporate the Guide into the classroom

The companion Instructor's Resource Manual includes additional information tools to help smooth integration of the Guide into your laboratory program. A $99 value, you receive one free with every 25 copies of the Guide your school orders.
