English in the Lab



You and your colleague have just been assigned to a brand new laboratory and it is your responsibility to make sure that safety and emergency instructions are easily accessible for anyone who might need to work in the lab. You have been asked to create a poster that anyone can refer to easily, detailing a number of safety rules and emergency procedures.

You will need to explore the documents to identify the recurring dangers you and your colleagues might be faced with while working in a laboratory. You will also need to  anticipate on any type of emergency situation and the way to handle any such problems in order to create a clear though detailed instruction poster for your lab.

By the end of this activity you will have learned how to express instructions in a laboratory environment and will have acquired a good command of the basic lexical content needed to work in a lab and interact with your colleagues in English.
