SAFETY SHEET

The Illinois Junior Academy of Science


Directions: The student is asked to read these introductions carefully and fill out the bottom of this sheet. The science teacher and/or advisor
must sign in the indicated space. By signing this sheet, the sponsor assumes all responsibilities related to this project.
Safety and the Student: Experimentation or design may involve an element of risk or injury to the student, test subjects and to
others. Recognition of such hazards and provision for adequate control measures are joint responsibilities of the student and the
sponsor. Some of the more common risks encountered in research are those of electrical shock, infection from pathogenic
organisms, uncontrolled reactions of incompatible chemicals, eye injury from materials or procedures, and fire in apparatus or work
area. Countering these hazards and others with suitable safety practices is an integral part of good scientific research. In the chart
below,list the principal hazards associated with your project, if any, and what specific precautions you have used as safeguards. Be
sure to read the entire section in the Policy and Procedure Manual of the Illinois Junior Academy of Science entitled "Safety
Guidelines for Experimentation" before completing this form.

with skin and eyes. Keep away from
incompatibles such as oxidizing agents,
acids. Store in a segregated and approved
area. Keep container in a cool, wellventilated area. Keep container tightly
closed and sealed until ready for use. Avoid
all possible sources of ignition (spark or
flame).
7. Do not ingest. Do not breathe
dust. Avoid contact with eyes. Wear
goggles, lab coat, gloves. In case of
insufficient ventilation, wear suitable
respiratory equipment. If ingested, seek
medical advice immediately and show the
container or the label. Keep away from

wear suitable respiratory equipment. If
ingested, seek medical advice immediately
and show the container or the label. Avoid
contact with skin and eyes. Keep away
from incompatibles such as oxidizing
agents, reducing agents, acids, alkalis.
Store in a segregated and approved area
(flammables area) . Keep container in a
cool, well-ventilated area. Keep container
tightly closed and sealed until ready for
use. Keep away from direct sunlight and
heat and avoid all possible sources of
