Laboratory Safety & Certification

(Required BEFORE first laboratory)

Important Notes!

(1) We should be UPLOADING these Laboratory Safety & Certification PDFs
to Blackboard approximately one-week before the start of laboratories.

(2) However, we may not upload these PDFs until a few days before the start of laboratories,
or during the first week of laboratory.

(3) Therefore, you need to keep checking your Blackboard Account each day,
so you can COMPLETE & SUBMIT when available.

(4) DO NOT WORRY! It is not difficult to complete & submit.

(5) It will take you approximately 30-45 minutes.

Step #1

GO TO > Blackboard
Watch ACS Chem Safety Video

Step #2

GO TO > Blackboard
Complete & Submit
“Safety Quiz”

Step #3

GO TO > Blackboard
Complete & Submit
“Safety Contract & Emergency Info”
“Technology Acknowledgement”
“Proctoring Acknowledgement”

Step #4

GO TO > Academics > Departments > Physical Science > Laboratory Manuals
Download & Print Laboratories
Enter Your Name & Date
Read & Prepare
Bring to Laboratory

Step #5

Come to Laboratories on time or you will be locked-out of Laboratories
(for safety reasons)
