Hazard Recognition - The World Around You
Students will be able to recognize other chemical hazards (consumer or not) around them. They could be prompted in a brainstorming exercise by asking about chemical products they may find in:
- different rooms in their home (garage, bathroom, kitchen, workshop)
- parts of their school (art class, science class, furnace room)
Once they have identified these hazards, ask them about how risky those hazards could be, for example which is riskier:
- flammable gasoline or water-based paints, and why?
- window cleaner or oven cleaner, and why?
Students need to think about using any hazardous product as safely as possible.
