Establishing a Safety Culture in a School Setting
The first step toward recognizing hazards is awareness of safety to begin with.
It's the teacher's responsibility to instill a general understanding of safety in the laboratory. We recommend adopting an appropriate set of safety rules and guidelines for students that is manageable and specific for a particular class and setting.
In addition to providing students with a set of guidelines, it's also important to have them (and their parents or guardians) sign a safety contract.
