> >If you"re aware of any reputable journal article, news story (think C&EN, etc.) that addresses this specific topic, please let me know the reference. I"m particularly interested in any piece wherein an industry leader (BASF, Dow, DuPont, Monsanto, Huntsman, etc.) has issued a clarion call (or plea) for higher education to improve their efforts to train future graduates in the basics of laboratory and chemical safety.
If you want something short and pithy, the first thing that springs to mind is a letter to the C&EN editor at

In it upper management from Corning, Dow and DuPont explain their concerns in this regard. The longer version is the story on the report (and the report itself) on "Advancing Graduate Education in the Chemical Sciences"

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
