Subject: Final Reminder: DCHAS-L membership safety culture survey

Update: 155 people have responded to the survey described below. Thanks 
to everyone who has! 

However, we'd appreciate input from more DCHAS members (no matter what 
kind of organization you work in) to help us better understand both the 
work our members do and how we can best serve your needs. The survey 
will close next Wednesday and a summary report of the results will be 
available in January. 

So please take 10 minutes and go the survey monkey link below to 
complete the 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 Academy of Sciences meeting 
on this subject described on the C&EN Safety Zone blog see

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.
