At today's symposium at the ACS National Meeting, the Hazards Identification and Evaluation Task Force of the American Chemical Society?s Committee on Chemical Safety released a draft version of its document
"Identifying and Evaluating Hazards in Research Laboratories". It is available at

The Committee on Chemical Safety has released the draft of the guide on ?Identifying and Evaluating Hazards in Research Laboratories.? These guidelines were developed in response to the Chemical Safety Board recommendation to develop good practice guidance that identifies and describes methodologies to assess and control hazards and that can be used successfully in research laboratories. Even though the techniques and tools have been piloted in various institutions and we are confident that they can be used immediately if an institution wishes, CCS is seeking community input for improving these guides before final publication and release.

Please provide your comments to safety**At_Symbol_Here** by October 15.
