I teach a hydraulics and pneumatics workshop to Grade 8 students for Scientists in School. I am amazed at how few schools have a syringe safety policy in force. With the two or three schools IÕve been in that have a policy (sorry, I canÕt remember the schools), letters are sent home to parents explaining that syringes used for science experiments could be dangerous if not handled safely (i.e., shooting water at another students and hitting them in the eye).
