FYI, a summary of last Tuesday's DCHAS presentations at the national ACS meeting and links to the presenter's powerpoints can be found at: yyYlKbmnU6Nv5veiQZhFdtpWN0w4sagAqD8ASH4xA&e=

Tuesday's presentations discussed the Developing, Implementing & Teaching Hazard Assessment Tools from a variety of points of view, including their impact on lab safety culture; their role as an information and educational process in the laboratory; and how institutions can provide oversight of the quality of this work.

The afternoon session was a 3 hour workshop that discussed how the Bowtie Methodology to hazard and incident analysis can be applied in the laboratory sessions through several examples worked through in small groups.
