Subject: DCHAS safety culture survey

As you may be aware, there is significant national interest evolving in 
the U.S. with regard to the "safety culture" of academic laboratories. 
One example of this is the recent National Academic of Sciences meeting 
on this subject described on the C&EN Safety Zone blog (see
safety-summit/ )

Unfortunately, the information associated with this question is 
primarily based on anecdotal review of specific incidents. To better 
understand DCHAS members' broader experience in participating in the 
safety culture of their organizations, we would appreciate your 
responses to a short survey (12 questions) found at

Please respond to this survey by December 22. A summary of the responses 
will be provided to the DCHAS-L e-mail list in January.

Thanks for your interest in Chemical Health and Safety.
