You don't even need an explanation, it says "safety proceedures" in the forum description.
Although I believe safety procedures are usually specially tailored to the circumstances at hand, there are always basic guidelines you have to/should follow. When posting about any procedure, it would be quite admirable and beneficial to others if you thoroughly discuss the safety precautions and hazards involved with particular substances procedures, or equipment. Here, we will discuss the things you should probably always do no matter what.
Right now I'm not going to write out the thread OP. Yes, I'm a lazy procrastinator, but also because I'm gonna get pissed seeing my name on the first page so much(GODDAMNINTERNETCOMMUNISTREVOLUTION:mad: ). So yeah, I'm a master of the custodial arts. A janitor, if you want to be a dick about it. My job is to clean up messes here, not make them. You guys are responsible for producing the content.
Because of this, who ever can give the best reply regarding general lab safety before, well, however fucking long I decide, becomes the OP of this thread(how I'm going to do that, I don't know yet, but it shall be done).
Till then, I'm going to type out something from a lab manual I have. But that can wait a bit, give you guys a chance to post.
