Safe Science: Be Protected!
Roy, Ken
Science Education International, v17 n3 p205-211 Sep 2006
More science laboratories are being built because of larger enrollments in academics and schools. There is an increase in hands-on/process science effected by the renewed interest in and priority of science education. New science curricula like Biotechnology and Advanced college type program courses are being introduced with the use of exotic laboratory chemicals. The cost in dealing with chemicals in the science laboratories has been skyrocketing. All of these changes are putting pressure on the laboratory waste issue. This article offers information and specific recommendations on how schools can address hazardous waste generated by their science laboratories.
