Following on from something robertprior said about health and safety guys thinking that science in schools = danger, here's a list of school lessons and locations. See if you can put them in order from most to least dangerous before looking behind the cut:

Stairs, corridors, cloakrooms
Classrooms
Toilets
Laboratories and workshops
Sports and PE
Playground
School fields and grounds
Other



1 Sports and PE
2 Playground
3 Classrooms
4 School fields and grounds
5 Stairs, corridors, cloakrooms
6 Other
7 Toilets
8 Laboratories and workshops



I think this data comes from several years of accidents reported in Britain, but I don't have a more detailed analysis.

The main reason why science accidents are so few is that safety is taken seriously and a lot of resources are used to make it as safe as possible.



Draw your own conclusions.
