ABSTRACT
The article addresses the concern of a high school science teacher who e-mailed the author concerning the security and other safety issues, as a family and consumer science class will be held in a chemistry laboratory. As allocating nonscience classes to laboratories predisposes both science teachers and administrators to liability and other legal issues, security action plans such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, storage area security, and controlled access are discussed.
