Guidelines for Chemical Laboratory Safety

The Guidelines for Chemical Laboratory Safety publications help educators develop, enhance, and assess the safety education of their students, assisting teachers, faculty, and staff as they build:

Knowledge

Develop, enhance, and asses the safety education of their students

Awareness

Increase awareness and understanding of best practices

Foundations

Establish strong foundations for safety in their institutions, departments, and facilities

Safety Culture

Nurture a culture of science safety early in students’ academic and professional careers

High School

This set of guidelines is designed mainly for the high school chemistry teacher. The learning objectives provide a solid foundation for students preparing to enter collegiate science programs.

College

This set of guidelines supports institutions, from two-year college programs into graduate programs, identifying laboratory safety knowledge expectations throughout their educational career.

Resources

These materials support both High School and Collegiate learning objectives and outcomes, helping nurture a culture of science safety early in students’ academic and professional careers.
