    • Science Safety Guide Jennifer L Baron Hawaii Pacific University ED 6450: Science Curriculum and Instruction April 29, 2007
    • Letter of Introduction   To inform students and other lab users   Safe environment   Handling materials, treatment of animals, disposal, avoiding incidents, emergency action plans
    • Following Procedures and Safety Steps       Importance of following step-by-step instructions Successful completion and safety Failure to follow directions Hazard   Unexpected results   Unnecessary harm         Perform only assigned experiments Restricted Areas Respect laboratory property
    • Student Conduct in the Lab   Behavior   Professional manner   No horseplay   Language   Clothing   Goggles, Lab Coats, and Aprons   Food and Drink   Bathroom
    • Arriving and Leaving Lab   Arrival   Take seat   Look over lab instructions   Short lecture   Wash hands, put on safety goggles, and other lab gear   Leaving   Put materials away   Wash down lab tables   Wash hands
    • During Lab   Contributing   Develop lab skills   Take notes, record data, writing in lab notebook   Cross   Work out mistakes productively
    • Handling Equipment   Inspecting Equipment   Precaution   Handling and Carrying   Microscope   Test tubes   Knifes
    • Using Laboratory Equipment   Use for its intended use   Follow lab steps carefully
    • Handling Materials and Spills   Mixing Chemicals, Other Materials         Do so if told by the instructor Mix slowly and delicately Use what you need Spills   Acids     Bases         Vinegar Avoid breathing in vapors Chemicals on skin     Sodium bicarbonate/baking soda Flush with cold water Chemicals in the eyes Touching, tasting, smelling, and looking
    • Labeling, Storing, and Disposing Chemicals   Labeling     Name, strength, date Storing Laboratory storage room   Acids stored in corrosive cabinets   Solvents in flammable cabinets   Separate acids and bases     Disposal Do not pour down the drain   Pour in specified container in fume hood   Do not dispose of in trash cans  
    • Handling Animals   Handling and Treatment Dead or alive   Humane, non-teasing manner     Allergies Inform instructor   Not required to work with animals   Student records and medical information       Kept confidential Other alternatives Uncomfortable while working with, holding, or dissecting   Supplemental activity  
    • Working with Plants   Inform instructor of allergies   Instructor will provide plants   Will never conduct lab experiments with plants that may cause poisonous reactions or cause allergic reactions   Do not burn plants   Do not eat   Wear gloves
    • Working with Body Fluids, Bacteria, and DNA   Serious and handled carefully   Spills   5% Lysol, Zephiran, or similar   10% Clorox bleach solution   Biohazard   Glassware in autoclave
    • Knowing the Classroom   Safety Equipment and Lab Material Locations   Master shut-off valves, switches   Fire extinguishers   Eye wash station   Body shower   Fume hood   Safety gear   First aid kit   Fire alarm   Telephone
    • Emergency Actions   When to call 911   Chemical spill on a person(s)   Chemicals in eyes   Fire   Dizziness or nausea   Allergic reaction   Someone needs to use safety shower
    • Emergency Actions   Information to know when calling 911   Accident that’s being reported   Address of school   Directions to classroom/room number   Information about person(s) requiring assistance   Tell school office   Inform staff/administrators
    • Attendance and Make-up Work Policy   Time is limited   Schedule   Excused absence   Unexcused absence   Make-up work   Responsible for lab notes, results, and discussion from lab partners
    • References   Council of State Science Supervisors   Science and Safety: Making a Connection   Flinn Scientific   Hawaii Pacific University   Science   Produced Safety Laboratory Guidelines by own memory of labs throughout high school and college   More guidelines and information given throughout the year
    • Student Contract   Student Understands importance of science safety and laboratory behavior   Aware of additions to guidelines   Know parents will be contacted     Parent Gone over guidebook with son/daughter   Aware child could be removed from classroom   Not receive a grade   May not be able to return to lab     Severity of actions
