Chemistry Lab


The chemistry laboratories at SPNPG College give students the opportunity to perform experiments that explore important chemical concepts and introduce proper lab techniques and safety.Chemistry laboratory must be a safe place in which to work and learn about chemistry.

        Most of these involve just using common sense.

  • Wear chemical splash goggles at all times while you are in the laboratory. 
  • Wear a chemical-resistant apron.
  • Be familiar with your lab assignment before you come to lab. Follow all written and verbal 
    instructions carefully. Observe the safety alerts in the laboratory directions. If you do not 
    understand a direction or part of a procedure, ask the teacher before proceeding.
  • When entering the lab/classroom, do not touch any equipment, chemicals, or other 
    materials without being instructed to do so. Perform only those experiments authorized 
    by the instructor.
    Wash acid, base, or any chemical spill off of yourself immediately with large amounts of water. 
    Notify your teacher of the spill.
    • If you take more of a chemical substance from a container than you need, you should not return the excess to the container. This might cause contamination of the substance remaining. Dispose of the excess as your teacher directs.
    • Never smell anything in the laboratory unless your teacher tells you it is safe. Do not smell a 
      substance by putting your nose directly over the container and inhaling. Instead, waft the vapors 
      toward your nose by gently fanning the vapors toward yourself.
    • Observe good housekeeping practices. Work areas should be kept clean and tidy at all times.
      Only lab notebooks or lab handouts should be out on the table while performing an 
      experiment. Books and book bags should not be on the lab table. Passageways need to be 
      clear at all times..
