Today's Safety Zone blog entry includes a request from the author for examples of how to be positive and proactive about safety rather than punitive and reactive, such as the example below. If your group or department is doing something that others could find useful, please get in touch with Jyllian!

Stony Brook chemistry incorporates lab safety into Research Day celebration
By Jyllian Kemsley

Researchers developed lab safety demonstrations, competed for prizes, and attended a safety equipment expo as part of Stony Brook University chemistry department's Research Day in January.

Research Day is an annual department tradition going back at least a decade, says department chair Nicole S. Sampson. Students prepare posters about their research, the department hosts a lunch, and one of the faculty members gives a keynote lecture. "Undergrads and other faculty wander through and find out what's going on in the chemistry department," Sampson says.
