As lab manager, you are responsible for putting together a manual to give to all newcomers to your lab. This manual will provide new lab members with information they will need to get started with their work and adhere to the rules and regulations of the laboratory.

In your manual, include guidelines for maintaining lab notebook/data records; guidelines for writing and updating protocols; guidelines for accessing lab protocols; rules and regulations for working with biologics and hazardous chemicals (radioactive materials, ethidium bromide, organics, tissue culture materials, bacterial cultures/recombinant DNA materials, potentially infectious agents); a listing of training courses that need to be taken (examples include institutional training required for working with animals, radioactivity, blood-borne pathogens); guidelines for inventory maintenance; guidelines for placing supply orders; and guidelines for handling problems with lab equipment.

Please look at your syllabus to see exactly what should be included.

Remember, that the type of laboratory in which you are working will dictate what I will be looking for when grading. I would highly recommend starting out with information regarding the lab and its function.
