Every student participating in a lab course in Inorganic, Organic or Physical Chemistry needs a laboratory insurance for the appropriate semester! The lab insurance has to be taken before starting the lab course.
The lab insurance can be taken online via

This lab insurance is validate for one semester and for all lab courses.

The usual safety regulations apply in the chemical laboratories. It concerns especially the wearing of safety goggles, overalls and protective gloves, the (Non-)consumtion of meals and beverages and smoking.
The detailed introductions are available in the laboratory and is also available as handout. Students have to make themselves familiar with the theoretic basics of the subsiding reactions before each experiment. The equipment has to be checked before the experiments.

The assistants are obligated to make sure hereof and to take sanctions if necessary, e.g. laboratory exclusion. The attendants also have to know and to record the risks and safety regulations of the used chemicals and products in their lab notebooks.

Chemicals and glassware have to be carefully handled so that there is no danger for the other attendants and assistants. Damaged glassware has immediately to be fixed or disposed.
Chemicals with toxic vapours are only to be handled in a hood.

Contraventions will be punished and can lead to lab course exclusion on a daily basis.

All experiments done in the laboratory have to be documented in a lab notebook. Experiment reports implies reaction equation as well as reaction mechanism. Reaction equation, reaction mechanism and chemicals description have to be recorded before the experiments.
