A list member let me know today that the National Science Teacher's Association released a statement last week about the role of laboratory safety relative to the Next Generation Science Standards which was discussed here about a month or so ago. The statement can be found at

They also have a variety of other lab safety resources on their web site at
These include:
? Managing Your Chemical Inventory (PDF)
? Safety and the Next Generation Science Standards [added 2016.04.12]
? Tips for the Safer Handling of Microorganisms in the School Science Laboratory (PDF) [updated 2016.04.12]
? Field Trip Safety (PDF) [added 2015.03.17]
? Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (PDF) [added 2014.05.20]
? Duty or Standard of Care (PDF) [added 2014.05.02]
? Overcrowding in the Instructional Space (PDF) [added 2014.05.02]
? Safety in the Science Classroom, Laboratory, or Field Sites (PDF) [added 2013.05.23]
? Safety Acknowledgment Form for Working with Microorganisms (PDF) [added 2012.05.09]
? YouTube and Other Public Posting of Science Demonstration Videos (PDF) [added 2012.05.09]
? Safe Handling of Alcohol in the Laboratory

Many of these are likely to be useful models for specific organizations to start from when addressing these concerns.
