Health & safety
Topics in Safety (ASE 2018)1 is an authoritative reference for schools and colleges. It consists of essays on safety-related issues arranged in individual topics that serve as recommendations based on the best advice available at the time of publication.

'Safety guidelines' and 'Suitable and unsuitable microorganisms' that can be accessed below, are reproduced with permission from Topic 15 'Microbiology'. 'Risk assessment' is a modified version of guidance that was included in the second edition of Topics in Safety.

The original Topics in Safety was produced following a safety conference of experts, including representatives of MiSAC, convened by ASE in 1997. The 4th edition of Topic 15 is a much-revised updated version of the equivalent section in Safety in Science Education (DfEE 1996)2. The 4th edition of Topics in Safety is currently only available online to ASE members. 1
