“The Safety Checklist: Navigating to Safer Waters!” December NSTA Safety Blog Commentary by Dr. Ken Roy – NSTA Safety Blogger. Science and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) laboratories can be unsafe places with potential hazards and resulting risks. This is where the development and use of a safety checklist comes in. It could be considered a component of the safety action to be taken after an initial hazard analysis and resulting risk assessment is done. First, the safety checklist serves as a map to help teachers and their supervisors navigate to safer waters. Second, the checklist also functions as a legal document illustrating an intent to work in a safer teaching/learning environment.
