Flame Photometer Hazards

Keeping co-workers and yourself safe

Any piece of laboratory equipment can pose a hazard. Over time casual attitudes have resulted in the creation of some pithy tongue-in-cheek “Laboratory Rules & Observations”, such as:

  1. You cannot detect an odourless gas by its smell;

  2. Hot Glass looks exactly the same as cold glass;

  3. Never lick the spoon;

  4. Assume all unmarked beakers contain toxic, fast-acting poison;

  5. Always work with a partner so you have someone else to blame;

  6. Forget “Lab Safety”! I want Super Powers

…and so on.
