Poster Ideas for Science Safety
Keep your science classroom safe with posters. (classe image by Pascal Péchard from

Hot materials and chemicals can make a science classroom a risky place. But safety posters remind teachers and students how to stay safe. When you're assigning a science safety poster project, or if you've been asked to make one, gather ideas from the Council of State Science Supervisors safety checklist. Their guidelines are a good source for ideas.

Protective Equipment

Create a poster to inform your classmates about protective safety equipment. Illustrate how to use an emergency shower or eyewash station. Provide step-by-step instructions on how to use a fire extinguisher. Or, make a science safety poster that points an arrow toward the first-aid kit and fire blankets. Use shapes cut from bright sheets of construction paper to make a poster standout.


Do research and create a safety checklist poster. Include all of the science safety information that students and teachers need to remember. Draw pictures next to each checklist item. Each picture becomes a quick visual reminder. Cut and paste these pictures next to checklist items and align them with each item on your safety checklist.

Emergency Signs

Make a poster that tells people what to do during an emergency. Show how to shut off the gas, water and electricity. Point arrows toward each switch. Make a map that illustrates where these emergency switches are located. Use bright marker colours, such as orange and red, to call attention to your science safety poster.

Exit Signs

Posters make great exit safety signs. Fill the poster with a warning about keeping exits unobstructed, and include details about quickly evacuating a science classroom during an emergency. Emergency escape plan diagrams become useful science safety posters as well. Draw out your ideas carefully so that everyone can easily read them.

Safety Rules

Use the poster space to outline the safety rules of your science classroom. Write them down and add a picture for each science safety rule. Include rules about working in the hazardous areas of your science classroom. Cut and paste magazine photographs that match each science class safety rule.
