This is an online introductory course to health and safety for school science technicians. The course covers legislation and how this impacts on the management of health and safety in schools. There is a particular focus on employer's and employee's responsibilities with respect to the assessment of risk for hazardous activities undertaken by technicians in the workplace. Course participants will learn how to navigate and search the CLEAPSS website with an emphasis on how to find and use the CLEAPSS model risk assessments relevant to the role of a school science technician. The training consists of a series of video presentations interspersed with self-study tasks that can be completed at your own pace.
