NEW from DfE-Safe storage and disposal of hazardous materials and chemicals

The DfE has published new non-statutory guidance which provides practical advice for teachers, technicians and other members of staff involved in the delivery of practical science on the purchase, storage and disposal of hazardous chemicals.

The guidance can be found here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/storing-and-disposing-of-hazardous-chemicals-in-schools

It should be read in conjunction with advice provided by the suppliers of hazardous chemicals (known as ‘Material Safety Data Sheets’), information and guidance provided by recognised professional bodies or organisations, such as CLEAPSS or the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and considered alongside the Home Office’s Secure Your Chemicals guidance.
