Some of the high school teachers pointed this out as a significant concern, as well as the difference between the hazards of the preparation steps that they would be doing compared to the hazards of the students' work.

Another issue that arose was concern about where personal and institutional liabilities lay in case of an unexpected chemistry lab event; I know that this is a quite complicated issue, but does anyone know of a good, user-friendly guide on this topic for either high school or undergrad teaching lab settings? I'm thinking more in terms of how a prudent teacher approaches this issue before an event than after one.

Thanks to all for the thoughts people have shared on this topic on list and off.
