How could you apply the safety rules for performing an experiment in a chemistry laboratory?

Well there are many things. In the chemistry labs that I have had, they stress the importance of knowing where everything is in the room. Make sure you are aware of where the eye wash station is (if you have one), the safety shower, fire blanket or fire extinguisher, and first aid kit. Make sure and wear your goggles when doing any experiments. Stuff can splash up in your eye and that isn't much fun. Be careful with Bunsen Burners. Don't wear baggy clothes because they can get snagged or catch on fire! Follow procedures! Do something stupid and you can put yourself and your lab partners in trouble! It is also fun to play with sulfuric acid. Put some on your skin, it feels awesome!
