    Aim: The aim of this study was to create awareness and precautions to be taken while handling the chemicals in the laboratory among the dental students. Introduction: All the chemical products must be stored and labeled in accordance with the instructions on the safety sheet. Chemicals must not be stored together with inflammable material and gas cylinders. Based on handling the chemicals, it is advisable to read the safety data listed in it and must be familiar with the risks in handling it. Use of personal protection equipment is necessary. Immediately wash off chemical traces from the skin. There must be a safety data sheet for every chemical product that is hazardous to health or environment or is inflammable; hence, we are aware of the risks. Materials and Methods: The survey was conducted by an online survey platform-survey planet. A questionnaire of 15 questions was circulated among the students using an online link regarding the laboratory safety. Conclusion: From the results, it is clear that some of the students were not aware. This survey has helped to spread awareness among the dental students about all the precautions to be followed to lead a healthy life.
