background1
Background
  • ‘Chemical Safety in School Laboratories’ is funded by the Potential HiCoE (Higher Education Centre of Excellent) LESTARI awarded by Ministry of Higher Education.
  • Ministry of Education Malaysia – Management and Safety of Laboratories in School
  • Challenges:
    • Check-list available but concern on implementation
    • Accidents occurred at school laboratories
background2
Background
  • Objectives of the project:
    • To identify awareness of chemical safety among the students.
    • To identify availability and accessibility of infrastructures that are related to chemical safety.
    • To identify strengths and weaknesses of existing systems that are related to chemical safety
    • To identify chemical safety components in the syllabus of chemistry
background3
Background
  • Scopes:
    • Criteria for chemical safety
