Science Safety Announces Free Methanol Safety Course To All Virginia Schools

Science Safety, Inc., a leader in science, STEAM, CTE, and lab safety education, is offering a free methanol safety module to all Virginia schools.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) - Science Safety, Inc., a leader in science, STEAM, CTE, and lab safety education, is offering a free methanol safety module to all Virginia schools, in response to the accident in Dinwiddie High School in Dinwiddie County, Virginia where several students and a teacher were injured.

School science laboratory accidents and injuries involving methanol have occurred and resulting in many educational institutions banning the use of certain science experiments and demonstrations that involve methanol; including the ‘Colorful Rainbow’ experiment.

“The potential for fires and injuries resulting from the use of methanol in K12 schools can be significantly reduced, or even preventable, with appropriate and proactive safety training, and awareness,” said Dr. Brian Collins, a Director of Science Safety, Inc.

The Methanol Safety Module is a small segment of the grade, subject matter, and role-appropriate safety learning pathways that Science Safety offers. Safety learning pathways include a blend of traditional, virtual, video, animation, and scenario-based learning to achieve safety awareness outcomes. Pathways that use the methanol module include:

  • General Science Teachers and Chemistry Educators Safety
  • Chemical Hygiene Officer & Environmental Hygiene Officers
  • Core Science & STEM Safety for Middle School Educators
  • Middle School Administration Science & STEM Safety Awareness
  • Science & STEM Safety for New Middle School Teachers,
  • New High School Science & STEM Teachers
  • Pre-Service High School Teachers

To access the complimentary methanol safety module, Virginia schools may visit, click on the “Take This Course” button and follow the process to register.

“I’ve spent decades working alongside many educational professional associations and governmental agencies across the nation, in order to help make schools safer,” said Dr. Ken Roy, an internationally recognized science safety specialist. “Science Safety Inc. providing free access to Virginia schools for a methanol module shows a true commitment to the cause of science, STEM, CTE, and lab safety education.”
