From: safesci**At_Symbol_Here**sbcglobal.net Subject: Source For Middle and High School Level Chemical List Date: August 12, 2009 7:51:32 PM EDT One of what I would consider the best sources for chemical selection in middle and high school science labs is called "Rehab the Bio Lab!" The site has a large listing of what is acceptable and what is not, the rationale, the role of the chemical hygiene officer, etc. Check it out at: http://www.govlink.org/hazwaste/index.cfm Ken Roy, Science Safety Compliance Consultant National Science Teachers Association == From: Douglas Mandt
Date: August 12, 2009 11:57:05 PM EDT Subject: HS Lab Safety Another source of lab safety is the NSTA Journal, THE SCIENCE TEACHER. Flinn Scientific also has a lot of safety monographs and other support for high school labs. The Hazardous Waste Division of King County Metro(Seattle) has been very helpful with their Rehab the Lab program that has removed several tons of old, dangerous chemicals and reduced school inventories to a managable size in a large number of schools. The Washington Science Teachers Association has supported lab safety training for several years THE LAB SAFETY WORKSHOP is another good source of aid for high schools. Douglas Mandt Science Educ. Consultant == From: kauletta**At_Symbol_Here**notes.cc.sunysb.edu Date: August 13, 2009 7:18:08 AM EDT Subject: Re: [DCHAS-L] High School Lab Safety The EPA also has a program "Schools Chemical Cleanout Campaign (SC3)": http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/partnerships/sc3/index.htm "From elementary school maintenance closets to high school chemistry labs, schools use a variety of chemicals. When they are mismanaged, these chemicals can put students and school personnel at risk from spills, fires, and other accidental exposures. Chemical accidents disrupt school schedules and can cost thousands of dollars to repair. The Schools Chemical Cleanout Campaign (SC3) aims to ensure that all schools are free from hazards associated with mismanaged chemicals. SC3 gives K-12 schools information and tools to responsibly manage chemicals. By using the tools provided on this site and pulling together a team with a variety of perspectives, expertise, and resources you can develop a successful chemical management program. Schools, parents, and local organizations can partner to create a chemical management program that meets the unique needs of their schools."
