In the past, where organisations tended to be more hierarchical than today, the words, "strategy" and "operations" were almost mutually exclusive. In today's highly competitive environment, though, strategic operations capabilities must be in place in order for organisations to provide goods and services that meet and exceed customer requirements. Key issues such as cost, speed, quality, flexibility and constant innovation are all part of strategic operations. However, achieving such capabilities does not come by chance - instead a range of factors need to be put in place, as this session will explore.

CLEAPSS Keep it Safe! Health & Safety in practical Science for New Teachers (09:30)

09:30 - 16:00
2017-12-12T09:30:00+00:002017-12-12T16:00:00+00:00
Science teaching has a very good health and safety record. Nevertheless, science teachers must comply with health andsafety legislation as there are many hazardous chemicals, living organisms, pieces of equipment and procedures in use in school laboratories. There are many pitfalls to trap the unwary, particularly newly-qualified science teachers. As well as knowing how to work safely, new teachers also have to develop the skills needed to run a successful practical lesson. As part of the course we will consider what this means and offer suggestions and tips based on new CLEAPSS publications.
