Dear Ralph, When will they ever learn? Safety education is fundamental.

I noticed an article in the Journal of Chemical Education this week that describes an Australian University's efforts to incorporate graduate attributes into its curriculum to "produce bench-ready chemists". The list of attributes include:
=E2=80=A2 Creative and critical thinkers
=E2=80=A2 Empowered
=E2=80=A2 Engaged
=E2=80=A2 Ethical
=E2=80=A2 Knowledgeable
=E2=80=A2 Sustainability-focused
=E2=80=A2 Communicators
=E2=80=A2 Collaborators
=E2=80=A2 Problem solvers
=E2=80=A2 Organizers
=E2=80=A2 Able to apply technologies
=E2=80=A2 Information literate

Oddly, I don't find safety mentioned in the article and I'm not clear if it fits into any of the categories above...
