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 https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__strategy.acs.org&d=DQIFAg&c=lb62iw4YL4RFalcE2hQUQealT9-RXrryqt9KZX2qu2s&r=meWM1Buqv4IQ27AlK1OJRjcQl09S1Zta6YXKalY_Io0&m=8canlRRW5piChwa4Llei8i7vNtSc4wrPFXatHA-_brE&s=swRRz4qSd8kPPrUQfnmzuk7hPVN7Upt5BkwVWSWsPJs&e= ) 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.
