|SEP has tried to ensure
that the practical activities are healthy and safe
to use in schools and colleges, both for technicians
Preparing materials and pupils and teachers carrying
them out. In consultation with the CLEAPSS® School
Science Service, SEP has attempted to identify any
recognised hazards and suggest appropriate control
measures (safety precautions) to reduce the risks
from them. It is assumed that practical work will
be undertaken in suitable laboratories or work areas
and that good laboratory practices will be observed.
Teachers should consult their employer’s risk assessments
for each activity before use and consider whether
any modification is necessary for the particular
circumstances of their own schools, classes or rooms.
If necessary, CLEAPSS members can obtain further
advice by contacting the Helpline on 01895 251496
