Guidance on standards of safety and ethics

Guidance on standards of safety and ethics


The British Science Association refers to CLEAPSS on all matters health and safety related.
Their student safety sheets provide guidance on how to work in a safe and ethical manner in schools.

The safety sheets also provide guidance on animal testing in schools.
We expect all CREST projects to be compliant with relevant legislation, for example animal testing, the gathering and use of people's data etc.
