What In 2013, Achieve, Inc. released the final draft of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as an effective research-based approach with the purpose of providing all students access to a high-quality science education. In November 2015, The Connecticut State Department of Education adopted a 5-Year NGSS Implementation Timeline plan for its schools. Unfortunately, no NGSS document addresses safety! As students apply Science and Engineering Practice to exploring and understanding science phenomena, safety provisions will need to be developed and implemented for a safer experience.The purpose of this safety training and education program is to explore and develop safety provisions for the NGSS 5-year adoption. Participants will learn to develop safety provisions for NGSS components including Asking Questions and Defining Problems, Developing and Using Models, Planning and Carrying Out Investigations, Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions, and, Engaging in Argument from Evidence/Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information. Focus will be made on biological, chemical, physical and radiation hazards in development of safety provisions. In addition, consideration will be given to incorporating critical engineering controls, safety procedures and personal protective equipment.
The NGSS presents three dimensional science and engineering standards for all students at all grade levels. Students with a variety of learning differences and educational settings are expected to meet the new standards. For this reason, safety instruction and hazards analysis/risks assessment must be incorporated to any instruction and assessment of the NGSS delivered to each group. Hazards analysis, risks assessment and resulting safety actions will be a major component of the process in addressing issues for a safer NGSS experience.All science and STEM teachers need to take this workshop given there is no direction on safety protocols within the NGSS document and/or adoption. Be prepared for a safer NGSS experience and also learn how to limit your legal liability in the process.
Participants will gain a working knowledge of prudent safety practices in developing NGSS activities including:
As part of the registration, participants will be receiving a complimentary copy of Dr. Roy's latest book titled Science Laboratory Safety Manual. This $99 valued book contains over 450 pages of legal safety standards, better professional practices and other critical information that will be useful for participants on the job site following the safety training program.
