9.   Replace caps on reagents, solution bottles, and bacterial cultures. Do not open Petri dishes in the lab unless absolutely necessary.

10. Inoculating loops and needles should be flame sterilized in a Bunsen burner before you lay them down. Do not walk around in the laboratory with a loop or pipette having infectious materials.

11. Turn off Bunsen burners when not in use.

12. When you flame sterilize  with alcohol, be  sure that you do not have  any papers under You.

13. Treat all microorganisms as potential pathogens. Use appropriate care and do not take cultures out of the laboratory.

15. Sterilize equipment and materials. 

16. Never pipette by mouth. Use a pipetting aid or adjustable volume pipettes.  

17. Consider  everything  a  biohazard.  Do  not  pour  anything  down  the  sink.  Autoclave liquids and broth cultures to sterilize them before discarding. 

18. Dispose of all solid waste material in a biohazard bag and autoclave it before discarding. 

19. Report spills and accidents immediately to your instructor. Clean small spills with care and seek help for large spills. 

20. Report all injuries or accidents immediately to the instructor, no matter how small they seem.

21. Students  are  not  allowed  to  touch  any  equipment,  chemicals  or  other materials in the laboratory area until you are instructed by Teacher or Technician.  

22. Before starting Laboratory work follow all written and verbal instructions carefully.  

23. If you do not understand a direction or part of a procedure, ASK YOUR CONCERN TEACHER BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE ACTIVITY.
