7. Safety in Gas Appliances
This Association for Science Education (ASE) publication about safety in gas appliances was developed in association with the British Gas Corporation. At the time, this was the only gas industry in the world to be involved in every aspect of gas supply.
The booklet contained guidance for teachers and notes for students. It included activities suitable for students aged 14 to 16 with links to science, electronics and technology courses.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
