SPRING 2018 ACS WORKSHOP:
Student Leadership Skills
in Laboratory Safety
SUNDAY, MARCH 18 • 3:00 – 6:00 PM
Recently, several research-intensive chemistry departments
have instituted Lab Joint Safety Teams (JSTs) and similar programs to support graduate student empowerment around laboratory safety issues. This year, we will offer a pilot workshop
on Sunday March 18th from 3:00 – 6:00 PM at the Spring National American Chemical Society Meeting in New Orleans, LA.
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 Graduate & Postdoctoral Scholars Office, 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.
SPACE IS LIMITED!
