for Forms & Projects:
Assessment Form 3 is a good form for all students to complete,
even if it isn't necessarily required as the questions really
get them to think about safety.
is important that ALL hazardous
chemicals, activities and/or devices that will be used in the
project be included under #1 and answer the remaining questions for each one.
Be very specific and provide as much detail as possible to avoid
future questions when the SRC reviews it for competition.
the Research Plan as a guide as to what to include and make sure
to include items that are used to build parts of the project as
firearms and/or bows and arrows are used, it is important to include a copy of the student's and supervisor's Colorado
Hunter Safety Card.
as a scientist needs to be qualified in the area of research that
a student is working in, a Designated Supervisor may need to explain
their qualifications. For example, if a student were using power
tools, it would be appropriate to have someone who is a carpenter
by trade supervising the student, even though the parent or teacher
may know how to use the tools. Being MOM or DAD is
not necessarily qualification enough to supervise a project using
hazardous chemicals or devices.
the student isn't going to be directly using a tool or device,
but merely assisting, please indicate this under the description
of safety precautions and procedures (#3).
of Safety Information (#5) should be done in the same manner as
a reference cited list is done.

Chemicals, Devices and Activities in research.
