Developing Graduate Student Leadership Skills in Laboratory Safety – Register by 2/10

The ACS Division of Chemical Health and Safety is sponsoring a new workshop to educate graduate students about lab safety culture and opportunities for promoting safety in their schools. The workshop called “Developing Graduate Student Leadership Skills in Laboratory Safety” will be held at the Spring National Meeting on Sunday March 18th from 3-6 p.m.

This 3 hour workshop will be led by two PhD students with extensive safety program experience. It will describe these efforts at the University of Illinois and University of Minnesota as well as literature from the ACS and the National Academy of Sciences that describes the opportunities and challenges of safety culture in the academic environment. These topics will be followed by discussion of practical steps graduate students can take at their institution to support improved safety cultures. The workshop is sponsored by the ACS Committee on Chemical Safety and ACS Office of Graduate Education, with technical support provided by leadership of the ACS Division of Chemical Health and Safety. Participants will be awarded a “Graduate Student Safety Leader” certificate.
