Sorry that I don't have a survey form to contribute.

I think it's a great and long-overdue idea.

For what it might be worth:

Some time ago, in an institution which of course must remain nameless, I
taught an OSH course which emphasized chemical hazards. It was populated
mostly by upperclassmen.

The most striking feedback I remember from the generic college-wide course
evaluation form was that of anger, e.g. "Here we are almost ready to
graduate...WHY hasn't anyone told us of these things before?" "Why did I
have to take this course to find out these hazards?" etc.

The students had of course received safety and health information along the
way, but at least those individuals felt that there should have been much
more attention to that area.

Subject: Training program feedback survey?

I wonder if anyone in the academic portion of DCHAS-L has conducted a survey
of people who have taken lab safety training for feedback on strong points and
opportunities for improving the experience for participants. I would like to
take on such an effort here and thought it would be good to know if other
people have developed such tools and possibly what the results were as a

Thanks for any information on this.
