In brief: Yes!
Every year, students get injured in their chemistry lab, usually from not following directions or from not paying attention.
Injuries are usually chemical or thermal burns, inhalation injuries, and cuts from broken glass. Emphasize to your student that this is not a time for horseplay and to follow directions carefully.
