Synopsis

Most science teachers and supervisors have anaemic pre-service preparation on securing and maintaining safer work environments in academic laboratories. The purpose of this volume is to raise awareness of safety issues and of how to develop a safer learning and working environment in middle schools. In addition to protecting students, the guides address legal standards and professional best practices to help teachers stay out of harm's legal way. --Author Ken Roy on The NSTA Ready-Reference Guides to Safer Science Safer science is a daily requirement for every teacher in every science classroom and laboratory. Get up-to-date information from The NSTA Ready-Reference Guide to Safer Science, Volume 2. This second volume is a collection of more than 40 of the latest quick-read ""Scope on Safety"" columns from Science Scope, NSTA's middle school journal (plus some adaptable ""Safer Science"" columns from The Science Teacher, NSTA's high school journal). As easy to read as it is practical, the book is chock-full of safety information, anecdotes, and advisories you can use every day.

The book's rich array of offerings includes topics such as general safety practices; legal issues, including negligence and liability; safety concerns in specific disciplines, including chemistry, Earth and space science, biology, and physical science; more than 40 teacher questions on everything from acrylic nails to latex goggles to ventilation; and helpful safety-related NSTA position papers and internet resources.
