Subject: [DCHAS-L] C&EN article: Chemistry Professors Promote Lab Safety

DCHAS people with access to C&EN on line are likely to be interested in the article at

The lead paragraphs:
When it comes to training students and postdoctoral researchers to work safely in academic laboratories, it is hard to overemphasize the importance of the head of the lab-the principal investigator (PI).

"The PI sets the tone for how a lab is going to act and operate," says Dominick J. Casadonte Jr., a chemistry professor at Texas Tech University. "If the PI is very safety conscious and has safety as a priority, then students and professionals in the lab will also have it as a high priority."
