Lab Safety, Special

Broken glassware causes more laboratory accidents than any other hazard. Because it is so fragile, glassware can easily fracture if it is bumped, dropped or too much pressure is applied to it. Some glassware accidents don't require much more than a band-aid, while others can result in a lot of blood and the need for medical attention. Plus, the threat of contamination from the materials in a broken container can also be a serious problem.
