Accidents involving glassware are a leading cause of laboratory injuries. These can be avoided by following a few simple procedures. In general, be certain that you have received proper instructions before you use glass equipment designed for specialized tasks that involve unusual risks or potential injury. Borosilicate glassware is recommended for all lab uses except for unusual applications that may require glass with specialized characteristics (e.g. UV light work or demanding heat stress).
