CLEAPSS Supporting practical science and technology
Health Safety update for Science Teachers
Science teaching has a very good health and safety record. Nevertheless science teachers need to be aware of health and safety legislation as there are many potentially hazardous chemicals, living organisms, pieces of equipment and procedures in use in school laboratories. This course aims to raise awareness about health and safety in school science and help you become more familiar with CLEAPSS services and advice. There will be opportunities to practise procedures for risk assessment and to allow you to share concerns, and discuss common problems. The course partly fulfils the legal requirement of employers to provide health and safety training for staff.

Audience: Teachers
Subject(s): Science, Health and Safety
Level: Next Steps
