Proposed ACS undergrad guidelines increase safety requirements

This week's issue of C&EN includes a story by Celia Arnaud about proposed changes to the ACS Guidelines for Bachelor's Degree Programs, which are developed by theCommittee on Professional Training. The issue also has a comment by committee leaders Anne B. McCoy of Ohio State University and Ron W. Darbeau of Louisiana's McNeese State University.

Included in the changes are revisions to the safety requirements. Former committee leaders told me a few years ago that the last guidelines revision, completed in 2008, had more explicitly addressed safety than earlier versions, so the newly-proposed revisions take the criteria a step further.
