Chemical Management Handbook for Australian Schools - Edition 2
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.
For a few of the chemicals, an additional Laboratory Notes page is included, giving more detailed directions for solution preparation and/or waste disposal. For some chemicals, the individual summaries are in abbreviated form with other information provided as generic for the group.
The summary pages are arranged alphabetically in the document, and can also be accessed via the bookmarks which are ordered according to chemical group.
Edition 2 has an additional 67 pages covering the chemical groups: aluminium salts, ammonium salts, chromium (III) salts, sodium salts and further potassium salts.
Chemicals not covered in this edition of the Chemical Management Handbook will be added in November 2018.
