Welcome to the new CLEAPSS Science Website
What is CLEAPSS
CLEAPSS resources give teachers ideas for exciting and engaging practical activities that fire pupils'
imaginations and then, unlike many other sources of ideas, go on to show teachers and technicians in
detail how to translate the ideas into safe and exciting experiences in the classroom.
CLEAPSS advice and documentation is recognised by the Health and Safety Executive and the Department for Education.

The guide to Hazcards - GL12018 Oct 2016
Our guide about how to use the new generation of Hazcards has been completely updated. Guide GL120 is a comprehensive guide on how to use the new CLP Hazcards.
All users of Hazcards should read and have a copy of GL120 to hand when using the new CLP Hazcards.
Many sections have been completely re-written, including the emergencies section.
Due to the changes in GL120, we have updated the Handbook Section 3 and removed (for now) Section 5 of the Handbook.
All the CLP Hazcards have now been uploaded to the website. There is also a 'All in one' file which is ideal for printing from.
Please note that the index (GL121), will be published shortly.
