Here’s our Minors in Lab policy: http://manuals.ucdavis.edu/PPM/290/290-32.pdf
In the chemistry department (where I’m safety manager), anyone who works in a research lab is required to take on-line Fundamentals of Lab Safety training, in addition to lab-specific training.
I’m currently working with Risk Management to make sure all those who may be supervising high school students are fingerprinted and background checked. I’m concerned there’s a gap.
Hope this helps.

Birkett's hypothesis: "Any chemical reaction
that proceeds smoothly under normal conditions,
can proceed violently in the presence of an idiot."
I would like your policy for high school students coming in and working in your research laboratories. I appreciate your help in this matter.
