Safety Procedures

Outline Safety Rules Clearly

It is important to establish lab ground rules on the first or second day of lab. Some rules are based on policies that have been agreed upon between you, other TAs and/or with the professor. Other rules are in place so that the lab proceeds without disruptive or inappropriate interpersonal interactions. The goal is to create a learning environment where all students perceive that they may equally contribute to the lab activity/task and that the lab is an essential part of their learning process.

Establish Regulations Contract Students may asked to sign a 'safety contract' before a lab actually begins. The TA must describe each item in the contract before students provide their agreement.
