Are you a Next Generation Science Teacher? Have the science teachers at your school participated in current science safety professional development? Did you know that training in science safety is required by CALOSHA to keep employees safe? Do you know what documentation is required to reduce an individual teacher, administrator, and/or the school’s liability?
The Science Safety for Educators Online Course will provide participants with information to build a solid foundation to create a safe science environment for employees and students. It is recommended that schools, districts, and organizations have as a goal to prepare 100% of all science teachers and other related personnel for the ever-changing environment of safety for themselves, others, and students.
Science Safety, especially in the science lab, is a critical and on-going issue for schools. Not only is it a subject of constantly changing legislation but also the risk of injury to any student, staff, or faculty member is a critical concern. Science teachers, administrators, safety officers, and risk managers must have current information regarding this most important area. All science teachers are recommended to participate but in particular, but it is vital for teachers who are involved in any science laboratory courses.
THE ONLINE COURSE:
The Science Safety Course is a video-based training available via the Internet. Embedded within the course, participants will receive electronic resources, web links, downloadable PDFs, templates, and sample plans. The online course, led by two science consultants from the Los Angeles County Office of Education, features guests representing both secondary and elementary science classrooms, an expert from CALOSHA, and a risk management officer.
The online course, which may be completed over a two-month period or by the course deadline, consists of five modules:
1. General K-12 Issues
2. Facilities and Equipment
3. Chemical Safety
4. Life Science Issues
5. Field Trips and Special Projects
Each online module has a brief quiz at the end that participants are required to take. A Certificate of Completion will be provided to participants who satisfactorily complete all five modules. Documentation will be provided to employing organizations by request.
Documentation will be given to the schools or districts by request for those employees completing the course.
