Subject: Re: Safety Course for Academic Credit

We have started a "Topics in Lab Safety" course this year at our 
university which is a 1.0 credit hour course which is mandatory for 
students who are doing research.  I am hoping to exand this to include 
all chem students and also science education majors.  We are using the 
ACS text for the course

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Safety Course for Academic Credit
Excuse the cross-posting:

Are there any institutions that offer a safety course (quarter- or 
semester-long) for academic credit?  This would be outside of course 
work for a degree in health and safety.  I know there are institutions 
that require lab safety training before students can begin work but I'm 
interested in an academic course, either required or elective.
