The Place Map and Directions to LSI

Teaching Learning and Practicing Science Safely means that before you do an experiment, demonstration or activity...

  • YOU KNOW the hazards.
  • YOU KNOW the worst things that could happen.
  • YOU KNOW what to do and how to do it if they should happen.
  • YOU KNOW and use the prudent practices, protective facilities, and protective equipment needed to minimize the risks.

There is more to lab safety than just labs. Our lives are filled with hazards.  When we Teach, Learn, and Practice Science Safely students and employees...

  • Learn to care about their health and safety.
  • Learn to Identify life's hazards and how to protect themselves.
  • Create a safer and healthier learning and working environment.
  • Live safer, healthier, longer lives.

Unfortunately, the accident rate in schools and colleges is 100 to 1000 times greater than at Dow or Dupont.
