Meet the unique safety needs of students with limited science training!

Science Safety in the Community College is specifically designed to help two-year college faculty—especially adjunct faculty—lay a good safety foundation for students in introductory science courses—even when they have widely differing science backgrounds. To encourage safety within a climate of inquiry, this handbook covers essential topics such as:

  • equipping a lab for safety,
  • safe materials storage and disposal,
  • safe field studies, and
  • special considerations for working with living organisms and teaching chemistry, Earth and space science, and physics.

The book also offers a wealth of related Web sites and a detailed index for quick reference. Science Safety in the Community College is the fourth in NSTA’s popular series of safety guidebooks. Not all community college facilities and students are the same, but this book will teach you and your students to “see” your particular physical environment and procedures through a safety-conscious lens.
