I'd put proper use of protective equipment at the top of the list. Also proper disposal of wastes. Using some basic instrumentation such as a spectrophotometer or pH meter.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Basic Laboratory Skills
OK - I am working on a few different things all of which require a listing of basic laboratory skills for general chemistry - i.e. those things they should have learned in high school science. There is no definitive list out there - and in fact - I am not finding a good one at all.
Here is my list:
- measuring to the proper significant figures
- Using a triple beam balance
- Transferring liquids
- mixing liquids and solids
- Heating materials
- smelling a liquid
- writing a laboratory report
- using a bunsen burner
What others should be on the list?
