This is level 2. Move through the scene and try to identify as many health and safety hazards, or examples of poor practice, as you can. Look for the key within the scene and this will allow you to progress to the next level (see right). More guidance on each level further below.
General guidance on the levels: Each level is slightly different with decreasing levels of guidance as you progress. All levels offer points for discussion between learners.
Level 1: You are welcome to re-attempt level 1 of this exercise.
Level 2: You will see 3 or 4 images within the scene without any hints. As you progress, you will see the same images containing blue dots to highlight the areas with health and safety issues. Unlike level 1, there are no additional hints.
Level 3: The scene presented offers no specific hints except to indicate the extent of health and safety issues.
Additional activity: Can you spot any additional synthetic chemistry lab health and safety issues that have not been highlighted?
Disclaimer: We have deliberately introduced health and safety issues into these synthetic chemistry lab scenes for educational purposes. We do not condone bad lab practice, but allowing learners to see such scenarios can help develop hazard perception skills and a general appreciation of health and safety. We have not highlighted all hazards in these exercises. Best practice may differ in your institution so please discuss this with a local instructor.
