I have a book that the MN Dept. of Education gave me a book entitled, Investigating Safely: A Guide for High School Teachers, which contains a list of chemicals high school teachers need to get rid of. The authors are Juliana Texley, Terry Kwan and John Summers, and the publisher is NSTA Press. You can also contact the MN Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP). They have a fair amount of information on greener chemistry and science experiments. You can contact them at: Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) McNamara Alumni Center University of Minnesota Gateway Center 200 Oak Street SE, Suite 350 Minneapolis, Minnesota 55455 - 2008 612/624-1300 As far as general industry regulations go, the OSHA Lab standard,1910.1450, applies, as well as any others. Two things to keep in mind: 1) OSHA regulations only apply to the teacher and not to the students. 2) Public school teachers in non-state-plan states would not be covered. - Diane Amell, MNOSHA Compliance >>> "McCartney, Alan"
09/29/06 9:00 AM >>> Is there a "good" or "recommended list of chemicals for use in a high school chemistry lab, or alternatively, is there a "Not Recommended" list (or a do not use list)? Are there any general industry standards regarding suitability of chemicals for high school chemistry labs. Sincerely, Alan P. McCartney Alan P.
