The Chemical Management Handbook was developed by Science ASSIST in recognition of a need for guidance on the safe handling, storage and waste disposal of chemicals in schools. The Handbook provides information on most of the chemicals in the Science ASSIST List of Recommended Chemicals in the form of a one page summary per chemical, which covers safe handling, storage and first aid, and waste disposal procedures.
We are doing the rusting of steel wool with vinegar experiment with our Year 8 students. There are various versions of this experiment on the net, this is one example: http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/experiments/steelwoolvinegar.html
This downloadable document gives a list of chemicals recommended by Science ASSIST for use in Science in Australian schools.
The information contained in the document includes the hazard classification and a recommended User Group for each chemical. The list can be downloaded as an Excel file.
