It is worth noting that this topic is the subject of the special di scussion period at Council in Denver.  The discussion is open for any to attend though only Councilors can participate.   

Since many academics are Councilors, there should be some good contributions, th ough I expect the discussion to highlight the large difference in approache s by academic and industrial scientists attention/concern/training on safet y and an instinctive safety culture before even crossing the lab threshold.
