School science laboratories are active sites of learning. They may also be areas of potential danger from fire, explosives, caustic chemicals, poisons, noxious fumes, and projectiles. Science teachers are charged with the responsibility of establishing an environment in which students shall have relevant, practical science experiences. In addition, certain segments of the subject matter will require that students develop particular attitudes, knowledge, and skills. Inevitably students will periodically be exposed to potentially dangerous situations.
