Re: Petty cash

In the DoE school's the teachers can get a refund, but never the labbies. This all happened about 5 years ago, sounds like it has now got to all schools. A Royal pain in the A-----------. but only teachers could claim not us. Happy new year!

Re: Hazardous Chemical Register

Our Principal would give out their last year stocktake at the exec meeting to the head of dept's. And he would follow up if they did not return it to me, by the said date. It did work well.

Re: Automatically Logging Out

I go to quick links above Home, perhaps it's the way you do it. Then click on Active topics. See if that helps

Re: Science Assistant Training

I agree, but did you know, most schools in NSW have a pit, which holds the waste from Science sinks, do check out your school plans, some times it;s called a Sump/ pit, If you have one, it can saved you thousand in chemical waste pick up.

Re: RiskAssess chemical codes

Risk assess is over the top, so we were told, its really for very very large amounts. Not the amounts used in schools, Again if you are DoE school its the CSIS that you have no choice but to follow. Sorry Bigmack but that is all I know.

Re: NEW GHS

Yes I know how you feel Macca, I'm very glad I am retired. When the CSIS first came in, it took 4 years to do our school. Then we had GHS labels etc, that took 2 years with a lady coming into relabel each friday. Its a game, if you ask me.
