>Should some topics be reserved for the second year lab students? I?d really appreciate your input on this.
Personally, I would move hazard assessment and management issues into the second year and focus on hazard recognition and emergency response in the first year.
However, of more interest is an article in the Journal of Chem Education this week that's entitled A Survey of Industrial Organic Chemists: Understanding the Chemical Industry?s Needs of Current Bachelor-Level Graduates
It has respondents from 100 organizations and addresses your questions from the industrial point of view for organic chemsts, although some of the answers seem kind of broad to me (e.g. "Accident Avoidance") and fume hoods show up under lab equipment rather than the safety category. Lots of interesting information there.
