National Academy of Sciences lab safety culture committee meeting in Boston tomorrow
by Jyllian Kemsley
The National Academy of Sciences committee on "Safety Culture in Academic Laboratories" meets starting tomorrow in Boston. The committee has previously met in Washington, D.C., and Berkeley, Calif.
Speakers for the open part of the meeting include Massachusetts Institute of Technology chemistry professor and safety committee chair Rick L. Danheiser. I spoke with Danheiser about MIT's safety program for "Learning from UCLA." Also on the agenda is William B. Tolman, chair of the chemistry department at the University of Minnesota and one of the people involved in Dow's academic lab safety partnerships. And then there's Susan S. Silbey, who is head of anthropology at MIT and studies "the creation of management systems for containing risks, including ethical lapses, as well as environment, health and safety hazards."
I can't attend the meeting, but if anyone else who does would like to recap it for the Safety Zone, please let me know!
