Margaret - the short answer is "no", the ACS is no longer selling the series.  However, the Committee on Chemical Safety is working on a replacement, using narrated PowerPoints.  The first of the series is done (Eye Protection) and others should follow one at a time.  Eye Protection should be available online by or shortly after the March ACS meeting. The good news is that these are free, and will be designed to play on YouTube.

If you’re really enamored with the old ACS Lab Safety Series, I think the Lab Safety Institute may still sell them.

Does anyone know whether the ACS still sells copies of the Lab Safety series?  I have just gone through interlibrary loan to borrow the extremely helpful "Compressed Gases:Safe Handling Procedures" booklet and would love to own the entire series.  A visit to the ACS website was not helpful...These were issued about 15 years ago (time flies...)

Many thanks,
