It occurs to me…simply because I am giving so many GHS HazCom training sessions lately, that the ACS publication "Safety in Academic Chemistry Laboratories, Vol. 1" (the little blue book as I call it) needs to be updated on the MSDS and labeling sections. Any idea if there is a plan for this? Wouldn't want to be giving schools outdated info while we're busy improving lab safety in academia.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] DCHAS and CCS "Virtual Booth"


The Division of Chemical Health and Safety and the Committee on Chemical Safety sponsored an exposition booth during the recent ACS national meeting. A variety of information was made available to those who stopped by the booth in the form of handouts and ACS publications. For those division members who were not able to make it to the national meeting, we've created a =91virtual booth' with links to a variety of free safety publications and other information. This can be found at the DCHAS Dropbox via the following link:

We hope that you find this informational useful. If there are other items that you would like to see included in the virtual and/or physical booth, please contact me.
