Example of Safe Conduct:
It’s 1:45 and the bell just rang. Joe walks up to his science class, and notices the teacher isn’t there yet. He decides to go sit down anyways, and wait for Mr. Robinson, when he notices a liquid on the floor. Joe thinks that the liquid is probably water, but since he’s a safe student, he decides to wait to ask the teacher before touching or approaching it himself.
Example of Unsafe Conduct:
Jeff finishes up his lab, and starts to put away all the extra materials. He first dumps all of his liquid chemicals into the sink. But, while he was walking back to put away the flask, he drops it on the floor! It shatters into small pieces, but the teacher didn’t notice. Jeff panics, and quickly leaves the class pretending he didn’t do it so he doesn’t get in trouble.
