8. I understand that my behaviour in the laboratory is governed by the university`s integrity code. If I don`t follow the chemistry department`s safety rules and rules, my expulsion from the lab may have the effect of doing so. The UCO Department of Chemistry`s mission is to provide students with a solid foundation in chemistry theory and application and to transmit good laboratory practices, critical thinking and communication skills so that students can become productive, ethical and engaged professionals in chemistry or related fields. The department also encourages the professional growth of students and staff by seeking and implementing opportunities for scientific work, scientific promotion and community engagement. When purchasing a chemical, you should ask the supplier for a copy of the materials safety sheet. You can also search for it on MSDSonline. 1. I was provided with goggles with polycarbonate (or equivalent) lenses and a laboratory apron. These objects are carried in the laboratory at all times. 9. I acknowledge that I have been provided with a key for a chemistry laboratory drawer and I take responsibility for this key and the contents of that drawer throughout the semester.
In addition to the devices in my drawer, I take full responsibility for the equipment I remove from the distribution room, and I understand that I am financially responsible for defective or missing devices. You can sign up for online courses through the Learning Center. Visit the safety training category on our website for more details. 2. I know the location and proper operation of laboratory safety devices, including, but not only: fire alarms, safety showers, eye washes, fire extinguishers and emergency exits. After clicking „I agree,“ the form is filed and you will be redirected to the chemistry department`s security page. The Department of Chemistry at the University of Central Oklahoma values teaching as an essential part of the training of our students. Our teaching is based on a rigorous and innovative curriculum, focused on developing the skills of students in chemistry and biochemistry. The department offers three study options: B.S. in Chemistry; B.S.
in Chemistry – ACS Certificate; and B.S. in Chemistry – Health Sciences. My name is Dr. Mike Jezercak, and I will be your teacher for this course. I contact you all in advance to draw your attention to the course site that is on my chemistry web. The page is available on the chemistry website and is linked here: www.drjez.com/uco 3. Security information is discussed in conferences and in the laboratory. I understand that additional security information can be obtained in /content/chemistry-department-safety and that I am responsible for verification and compliance with the content.
In addition, I am aware that I am subject to all its provisions, whether or not I have chosen to read and understand them.
