Student Safety in Science and Technology (Gr 7&8)

A Resource for School Administrators (CODE)

This resource is designed to help principals, vice-principals and supervisory officers promote and address health and safety provisions and requirements in schools. Developed by a team of educators and health and safety professionals as a support to the Student Injury Prevention Initiative, this document will help school leaders to know, recognize and respond to their responsibilities and duties regarding student health and safety in grade 7 and 8 science and technological education classrooms (Ontario Ministry of Education, Memorandum, George Zegarac, Deputy Minister, January 30, 2013). The information contained in this resource was compiled through a series of consultations with school board educators and school board health and safety representatives, and with partner organizations that offer health and safety services to the education sector.
