Alice, LSI believes that this awareness must begin in elementary schools. 
One of the reasons that we have the current state of affairs is that we don't start early enough to teach children to care about health, safety and the environment.  We don't teach them how to identify hazards and protect themselves.  ... Jim

Ken, you have a point. The universities are a place where the awareness of health and safety begins in a scientist career be it that they stay in academic or go on to industry. Maybe this is a wake up call to the universities to really teach safety to their students and not justto fulfill a requirement.
