From the editorial in this week's C&ENews

Award for The Safety Zone

I also wanted to share with you that C&EN Senior Editor Jyllian Kemsley has been awarded the ACS Division of Chemical Health & Safety (CHAS) Howard Fawcett Award. The award is presented annually for outstanding contributions to the science, technology, education, and communication of chemical health and safety, and this year CHAS has decided to present this award to Jyllian (and the C&EN staff) ‰??for her outstanding efforts in communication.‰??

Jyllian is responsible for The Safety Zone (, our blog that covers chemical safety issues in academic and industrial research labs and in manufacturing. It is intended to be a forum for exchange and discussion of lab and plant safety and accident information. It is written primarily by Jyllian, and it includes contributions from other C&EN staff writers and safety experts in academia, industry, and government.
As part of the award, Jyllian will give a presentation at the CHAS award symposium during the 250th ACS National Meeting, in Boston. If you are planning to go, please put Jyllian‰??s presentation on your must-do list.
