I'm helping to organize a symposium for the ACS National Meeting in SF this August around the topic below. People who present at the meeting are eligible for a one day registration to the conference paid for by the Division of Chemical Health and Safety. Let me know if you have any questions about this.
San Francisco, CaliforniaDates: August 10-14, 2014 • Theme: Chemistry & Global Stewardship
How Far We've Come: A Retrospective of Laboratory Safety Over the Decades
Organized by Ralph Stuart, rstuart**At_Symbol_Here**cornell.edu
In the bad old days before EPA and OSHA, research laboratories were very different places than they are now.
Researchers felt they had to sacrifice their health and well-being on the altar of discovery research.
How far we've come over the past 50 years or so!
This symposium will focus on how good toxicological research, advances in engineering controls and building design, and the creation of regulatory agencies have contributed to a radical shift in how we work with and interact with chemicals in the research laboratory.
War stories will be shared and an acknowledgement of those who gave all to science will be included.
