Science Lab Safety

As part of the CT Science Safety Network, the Project to Increase Mastery of Mathematics and Science (PIMMS) hosts an annual series of science safety workshops for teachers and administrators.

“The handouts and visuals of actual incidents were most helpful. Very dynamic speaker.” –Katja Pieragostoni, Science Teacher, 8th Grade, Bridgeport

Workshops take place at 51 Green Street, Middletown CT. Our instructor is Dr. Ken Roy of Glastonbury Public Schools. Dr. Roy is an authorized OSHA instructor, science safety consultant for the National Science Teachers Association, and a safety editor and columnist.

Each registration now includes a copy of Dr. Roy's latest book -- "Science Laboratory Safety Manual."  A $99.00 value with over 450 pages of legal safety standards, best practices, and more for your reference. 

You can register online at the CT Interlocal Risk Management Agency (CIRMA) website under “Training & Education Programs.” Payment is due in advance of the workshop via your school district or at the time of the workshop via personal check or credit card.
