    Got an interview Monday to be a Lab Technician at a company.
    What things what you recommend to prepare for such as safety aspects questions they might ask me? e.g. (don't add water to acid)
    And anything in general I should prepare for?
    Mostly safety aspects I definitely need to consider and know that in the lab world are just 'a given.'

    Research your role and the company you are applying to. You should read the job description and try to tailor your interview answers to suit the skills and attributes outlined in the job description. And yes be prepared for specific questions pertaining to your role, again, this is likely going to be based on what you are expected to know which may be mentioned in the job description.
