  7. Safety professional judgment • Consider the source (NSTA, ACS, STAT,…) • Research additional information • Consider video/virtual labs for activities… • Impossible in our labs (e.g., zero gravity pendulum) • Expensive (e.g., seismometer) • Unsafe (e.g., nuclear half life) • But are NOT a substitute for most labs
