Glue Guns: Aiming for Safety
Roy, Ken
Science Scope, v34 n2 p84-85 Oct 2010
While glue guns are very useful, there are safety issues. Regardless of the temperature setting, glue guns can burn skin. The teacher should demonstrate and supervise the use of glue guns and have a plan should a student get burned. There should be an initial first aid protocol in place, followed by a visit to the school nurse. An accident report should also be included in the process. This month's column includes a list of safety guidelines for teachers and students to ensure safer use of glue guns in the classroom or laboratory. (Contains 1 online resource.)
