The link

should open the Committee on Chemical Safety home page.

If it doesn't work please let me know at

The committee publicizes its home page widely, and I need to make sure that the link works for everybody.

Thank you for your help.

The American Chemical Society's Committee on Chemical Safety has produced an excellent publication Creating Safety Cultures in the Academic Institutions.  The final, approved version is available to download in PDF format at . The full production version will be available in a few months.  
The document provides guidance, suggestions, examples, and recommendations that will help strengthen the safety culture in two- and four-year undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral programs.
It identifies:
  • The best elements and best practices of a good safety culture.
  • Specific recommendations that could be used by universities and colleges.
  • Tools and resources that will help strengthen the safety culture.
Bob Hill and his Team did a superb job in creating this timely, cogent report.  It is well worth reading and sharing with your physical science departments and your administration.
