I thought I would let the list know that I have collected almost all of the presentations from the Philadelphia technical sessions on the DCHAS web site. Of particular interest of some of the posters I have added over the last few days,
including discussions of safety education, safety ethics and safety perception which provide interesting perspectives on the topics we discuss on the list.
I also thought I would mention (since I don't believe anyone has brought this to the attention of the list yet) that at the Philadelphia meeting, the Committee on Chemical Safety released its Guidelines for Chemical Laboratory Safety in Secondary Schools and
Guidelines for Chemical Laboratory Safety in Academic Institutions. These documents outline the safety content that high school and undergraduate students respectively should be aware of at the end of their chemistry educations.
Another newly available resource are Division of Chemical Education’s Minimum Safety Guidelines for Chemical Demonstrations which were approved in Philadelphia and are described at
The guidelines themselves should be on the CHED Safety Committee's web site soon.
