> Our department chair wo uld like a survey of the most recent  (past 5 yrs) accidents in a coll ege chemistry laboratory as part of a  presentation to the incoming ch emistry graduate students. 


A summary of the chemical safety ne ws events that I post to the list can be found at< /p>

The 218 laboratory events collected since Feb 1, 2010 can be found at


The size of these events varie s considerably, but there are many learning opportunities at all scales.

Good luck.
