This paper begins with a general overview of the safety needs of a classroom. The paper shows how, while labs, home-economics, and mechanics classes have obvious safety regulations, it is important to provide proper safety provisions in every single classroom. The study also includes specific examples of accidents that can happen in the classroom and what can be done to quickly and effectively treat them.

From the Paper:

"If any material does get into the eye or lodged behind a contact lens, "immediately flush the open eye with lukewarm, gently flowing water for at least 10 minutes. If irritation continues, obtain medical attention." Temporary mild skin irritation was also noted as another possibly result of using the stream tables. Goldsmith recommended washing hands and applying a skin lotion before handling the material, and, if the skin should become irritated anyway, rinse the area with plenty of clean water. Cleaning up is another opportunity for the dust hazard, so it is recommended that any spilled material not be dry-swept, but first dampened or sprayed with water before sweeping to cut down on airborne dust. Also, conduct any experiments using the equipment over old newspapers that can be rolled up and tossed into closed garbage cans when the project is finished."
