Dow LogoDow Safety Videos Checklist (click here)  

Dow Chemicals recently developed a laboratory safety website with instructional videos that provide a good resource for chemists to use when planning experiments. Publicly accessible at http://safety.dow.com, these videos cover a range of topics all but not limited to:

  • Exposure control
  • Good laboratory practices
  • Specialized chemical techniques
  • Chemical and waste management

These videos may be used to enhance your safety training but should not be used as a substitute for in-person training. In addition, you should always consult with your Principal Investigator or the senior lab member before attempting any reaction or experiment you are not familiar with.
