To prevent mishap in the chemistry laboratory to happen, abiding by lab safety guidelines is critical. In addition, having appropriate knowledge of and adhering to good lab practices, personal protective equipment, MSDS, globally harmonized system pictograms, chemicals compatibility, appropriate storage of chemicals, proper housekeeping and emergency response are all instrumental in minimizing or alleviating the risk.
