- wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary
- identifying school and lab safety policies and emergency procedures
- identifying lab or work area layout and safety areas
- locating potential hazards with tools, machines, equipment, and supplies.
- What are some consequences of failing to follow safety precautions in the lab and the workplace?
- What are the safety precautions to follow when using hand tools, machines, equipment, and chemicals in a lab?

- evaluating the impact of the government’s role in the economy on individual economic freedoms.
The student will apply social science skills to understand the role of government in the Virginia and United States economies by
- describing the provision of government goods and services that are not readily produced by the market;
- describing government’s establishment and maintenance of the rules and institutions in which markets operate, including the establishment and enforcement of property rights, contracts, consumer rights, labor-management relations, environmental protection, and competition in the marketplace;
