As a science educator, you know the importance of using the best safety practices to protect your students physically during hands-on science instruction. But do you also know how to protect yourself legally even in aging facilities and crowded labs? Learn the regulations and how to apply them with this clear, easy-to-use guide to both safety practices and legal standards. The NSTA Ready-Reference Guide to Safer Science is a compendium of 39 "Scope on Safety" columns from Science Scope, NSTA's member journal for middle schools. Major sections cover safety practices and legal standards, on subjects as diverse as asbestos, ergonomics, and bloodborne pathogens, and instuctional safety, including the challenges of occupancy loads, field trips, and safer science for special-needs students. Each section is divided into four parts: general science, chemistry, physical science, and biology. An appendix includes the NSTA position statements related to safer practices and resources and referenes from all the columns. But especially intriguing is the section devoted to questions teachers ask. Is it safe to allow backpacks, open-toe shoes, and long synthetic nails in the lab? Are microwave ovens safe to use for heating liquids for experiments? Can ether be safely used to anesthetize fruit flies in a lab? With this book on your shelf, you can quickly find out.

The work of accident prevention in the lab begins with foresight. Discerning "close calls"—near accidents—early enough prevents them from turning into full-fledged mishaps, mishaps that cost time and money, and which could result in injury. Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory is an accident prevention handbook for the professional in the lab that shows how to detect and eliminate the causes of dangerous mishaps—and virtually "hazard proof" any lab environment. In unequivocally clear and practical terms, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory, Second Edition offers detailed procedures—from precautionary labeling to simulated drills, safety inspections,and the preparation of a chemical hygiene plan—for the development of a safety-enhanced workplace. Reflecting, in part, the upgraded procedures now mandated by the OSHA Laboratory Standard in the USA, as well as the WHMIS regulations in Canada and the COSHH regulations in the United Kingdom, this newest edition offers unparalleled and up-to-date guidance on the fine points of hazard control, with new added material on managing and handling especially hazardous substances and personal protective equipment: The 95 percent solution: the list of causes of laboratory accidents Hazard categories: unsafe acts; unsafe conditions Selecting and maintaining personal protective conditions Accident handling Classes of fuels and fires Preventing and extinguishing fires Toxic effects of chemicals Recognition of and treatment for exposure Chemical specific safety protocol Storage of lab chemicals Safe disposal of hazardous waste Personal protective equipment in the laboratory Improving hood performance Designing safety into new or renovated laboratories A comprehensive, one-volume safety seminar, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory will provide indispensable guidance to lab supervisors and workers, teachers and students, and anyone involved in the investigation of chemical accidents and injury. In clear language that quickly details the full range of hidden—and avoidable—laboratory hazards, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory, Second Edition offers the most up-to-date, practical, and easy-to-implement lab safety regimen yet available.

Launched in 1995 as a companion to the Dictionary of Organic Compounds, the Organic Chemist’s Desk Reference has been essential reading for laboratory chemists who need a succinct guide to the ‘nuts and bolts’ of organic chemistry — the literature, nomenclature, stereochemistry, spectroscopy, hazard information, and laboratory data. This third edition reflects changes in the dissemination of chemical information, revisions to chemical nomenclature, and the adoption of new techniques in NMR spectroscopy, which have taken place since publication of the last edition in 2011. Organic chemistry embraces many other disciplines — from material sciences to molecular biology — whose practitioners will benefit from the comprehensive but concise information brought together in this book. Extensively revised and updated, this new edition contains the very latest data that chemists need access to for experimentation and research.

LABFAX volumes are purpose-designed data reference books for practising scientists. Each book presents key information for a major subject in one place and so saves hours of searching. It does not simply collect together data which are already available in catalogues since these are often incomplete and can contain conflicting information. Rather, the authors and editors of each LABFAX volume have searched the original literature for the accurate data which they know the specialist needs. Biochemistry LabFax is a detailed compendium of essential information - on radioisotopes, enzymes, proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, plus data on selected techniques such as chromatography, electrophoresis, etc. - needed on an almost daily basis by researchers in any area of biochemistry. In addition, the book acts as a gateway to other sources for information more specific than can be covered in a volume of this size.

Laboratory experiences as a part of most U.S. high school science curricula have been taken for granted for decades, but they have rarely been carefully examined. What do they contribute to science learning? What can they contribute to science learning? What is the current status of labs in our nation�s high schools as a context for learning science? This book looks at a range of questions about how laboratory experiences fit into U.S. high schools: What is effective laboratory teaching? What does research tell us about learning in high school science labs? How should student learning in laboratory experiences be assessed? Do all student have access to laboratory experiences? What changes need to be made to improve laboratory experiences for high school students? How can school organization contribute to effective laboratory teaching? With increased attention to the U.S. education system and student outcomes, no part of the high school curriculum should escape scrutiny. This timely book investigates factors that influence a high school laboratory experience, looking closely at what currently takes place and what the goals of those experiences are and should be. Science educators, school administrators, policy makers, and parents will all benefit from a better understanding of the need for laboratory experiences to be an integral part of the science curriculum�and how that can be accomplished.

The two Essential Molecular Biology books in the Practical Approach Series are designed for the absolute beginner at gene cloning whether they be at the start of their career or an experienced researcher in another field. As with the first editions, the objective of both volumes is to combine solid practical information with sufficient background material to ensure that the novice can understand how a technique works, what it achieves, and how to make modifications to suit personal requirements. Volume 1 concentrates on the procedures for DNA and RNA manipulation: purification, electrophoresis, and the construction and cloning of recombinant molecules. It also includes a general introduction to molecular biology in the laboratory and a survey of cloning vectors for Escherichia Coli.
