CLEAPSS: Keep It Safe - Health and Safety in Practical Science for New Secondary Science Teachers
10 DecemberDec 2019 UTC
This one-day course for new secondary science teachers will help you develop the skills you need to run a successful practical science lesson.
The course will seek to reassure the over-anxious, while restraining the too independently-minded teacher. It'll de-bunk a few myths and look at legal requirements for you and your employers.
As part of the course, you'll learn tips and suggestions based on new Consortium of Local Education Authorities for the Provision of Science Services (CLEAPSS) courses.
You'll have opportunities to check model risk assessments, such as Hazcards, and to consider how these might need to be modified to deal with problems of a particular school, room or class.
You'll learn about the importance of adopting control measures, such as eye protection, and of sticking to agreed procedures.
You'll discuss immediate remedial measures for personal injuries and other incidents.
You'll also engage in lab activities that commonly give rise to problems.
There will be opportunities to discuss your own safety concerns and to consolidate the learning for the day.
