Are you looking for safety instructions for introduction courses in molecular biology, maybe targeted to students? Or some specific to a particular techniques? Let me know I have a couple.

Generally; follow the safety protocols of your Biolevel Safety number.

BL1 - wear gloves and closed toed shoes as well as long pants
BL2 - wear gloves and a lab coat with closed toed shoes, long pants, and sometimes goggles
BL2+ - wear the provided protective gear as well as pants, closed toes shoes, gloves, and goggles when necessary.

I generally always wear gloves in the lab, but this is a preference. Although from day to day the items you touch in the lab may be harmless, over an extended period of time, I think it is best to wear gloves whenever possible because you never know if other people have touched your lab items with contaminants (example: EtBr from running a gel or just DNA which could contaminate your PCR).

Hope this helped! =)
