People may have noticed that the list did not include a headlines summery on Friday or (so far) today. I have been continuing to track events and record them at https://pinboard.in/u:dchas However, the LISTSERV program has not been responding to my postings to the list for unknown reasons. People who are curious what's happening in the hazmat world may want to go to the site directly.
Also, a quick reminder about the Divisional survey we have underway:
Thanks to the 40 people who have responded to the survey described below. For those who haven't yet, here's a quick reminder.
In the wake of the various (CSB, NRC, APLU) reports on laboratory safety culture over the last few years, there is growing interest in updating the ACS strategic plan (see http://strategy.acs.org) to be more explicit about the chemistry community's commitment to chemical safety as a value. In order to gather ACS member feedback on this idea, DCHAS is working with ACS staff to implement a survey of ACS membership to see what their reaction to this idea is.
In coordination with the more general ACS effort, the Division of Chemical Health and Safety invites its members to participate in this survey by going to
and answering the 17 questions there. There are no required essay questions, so I wouldn't expect the survey to take a long time to complete. We are interested in gathering the DCHAS-L response to the survey as a voice of the chemical health and safety community.
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
