Hawaii State Department of Education has placed the Science Laboratory Safety Manual and Chemical Management System CD in every school.

Chemical Management System CD
developed by Fred L. Beyer, Jr. and Linda M. Stroud, Ph.D.

This CD will allow a school system to determine which chemicals and amounts of the chemical that should be in a K-12 school. This chemical management system will prevent the reordering of hazardous chemicals that have to be disposed of by private hazardous waste companies. A site license is required for each middle and secondary school in a school system. Read the reviews! (pdf)

NEW! A second edition of the CD is now available with over 2400 chemicals.

Reviews for Science Laboratory Safety manual - 3rd Edition:

The Science Laboratory Safety Manual is comprehensive, readable, and informative. It provides extensive information for promoting safer science laboratories in our schools. The topics of liability issues, chemical management, biohazards, OSHA regulations, waste management, facilities, and prudent safety practices are an essential and critical component of the manual.

Other topics for promoting safer science laboratories, such as eye protection, fire safety, electrical safety, labeling, and NSTA Position Papers receive extensive review. Also, the document sets the standard for essential charts and tables to be included in a safety manual.

The Science Laboratory Safety Manual is an absolute “must have” resource and should be in every school district science office and on the desk of all science teachers. The information provided sets the standard for promoting safer science in our schools at all levels. The authors Drs. Ken Roy and Linda Stroud have done an excellent job in sharing the wealth of their specialty areas to enhance teacher understand of legal safety standards, better professional practices and liability in the engagement of students in the science lab!

Reviews for Science Laboratory Safety manual - 2nd Edition:

Because safety is everyone’s responsibility, it's wise to start with knowledge of all the factors considered essential for setting the bar for such safety. There's much more to be found between the covers of this work. ... A lot of work has gone into this manual, and a lot of benefit may come from it at all grade levels.
NSTA Recommends
Purchase the Science Laboratory Safety manual from the NSTA Science Store.

Dr. Linda Stroud has done a remarkable job in bringing together all of the critical elements of laboratory safety for in-the-trenches science teachers, supervisors and administrators with her publication titled Science Laboratory Safety Manual. This is a must read for both neophyte and veteran science educators as a user-friendly resource on how to be aware of, assess for and take action on safety issues in the laboratory. It has my highest recommendation!

Dear Linda:
I received you manual yesterday. Wow!
There is no question in my mind that the manual is the most complete and comprehensive
reference available to science teachers. Every school in the country should have a copy
for reference if for no other reason. I hope someone will review it for The Science Teacher.
I would like to review it for the NCSTA Newsletter if you think is is appropriate. I know
you didn't write it with the idea of having used as a stand alone manual, but it is so
comprehensive that I think it might even be used in research labs and university labs.

I couldn't find a single thing that I tried to look up that wasn't covered in detail.
Congratulations on a masterful piece of work.
