    Correct Answer
    A. Report it on SALUS, the College online reporting system so it can be investigated and prevented next time
    Explanation
    If you have an accident in your lab or your office, it is important to report it on SALUS, the College online reporting system so it can be investigated and prevented next time. This is necessary to ensure that proper measures can be taken to address any safety concerns and prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future. Taking no action or not reporting the accident would not help in identifying the causes or implementing necessary precautions. Being punished or informing parents are not relevant actions in this context.

    Explanation
    Labcoats and gloves should not be worn outside the laboratory as these can contaminate door handles, and other surfaces. This is important to prevent the spread of any potentially harmful substances or pathogens that may be present on the labcoats and gloves. By keeping them within the laboratory, the risk of cross-contamination is minimized, ensuring the safety of others who may come into contact with these surfaces. Wearing labcoats and gloves outside the laboratory for any other reason, such as in common areas or lecture theatres, is not necessary and can pose a risk to others.
