During my volunteering at NCS, my team and I were asked to produce a mental health awareness campaign so we decided to produce a video. We set ourselves the target of gaining 1K views. We all played a very important role in the process; my role was to identify shops that I could buy suitable props for the video on a budget which I was able to do, which was a financial target that was met. Once the video was posted, we gained 2.5K views and 35 shares on Facebook which I was very pleased with!
Standard operating procedures are step by step instructions on how to conduct a certain procedure. They are important because they allow standardisation with laboratory techniques, therefore, this helps to reduce variation in results due to difference in techniques and also any errors that may occur from an incorrect method.
Focus on safety - if the task was safe for you to carry out (e.g. not being asked to place your hand in moving machinary) and if you would be allowed to carry out that task at your position i.e if it was a task that only a registered scientist could carry out then you should point that out to them.
