Program Chair(s): Debbie Decker, Joseph Pickel, Frankie Wood-Black

Ask Dr. Safety: Chemical Security
Harry Elston
Neal Langerman

Ask Dr. Safety is a topic-oriented session devoted to open questions related to chemical safety. 'Chemical security' is the topic. How do you address the regulatory requirements under CFATS or Select Agents? Have you had a security breach and how did you handle it and the aftermath? How do you address misuse and diversion to faculty, students, and staff? These and many more questions will be addressed by leading experts in chemical safety and security. Come to the session and bring your questions.

Best Practices in Lessons Learned Programs
Ralph Stuart
co-sponsored by CINF

A key element in a proactive safety culture is the ability to learn from and share operational safety lessons that arise in the course of experimental work. This symposium will present case studies of both specific Lessons Learned and how they are shared and broader systems designed to collect and share this information for the larger community. Of special interest is how these can be incorporated into scientific publications, in line with ACS Publication guidelines.

Lab Safety Program Opportunities at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions
Monique Wilhelm
co-sponsored by CHED

Safety programs at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs) often have a very different focus than large research institutions due to variation in resource availability and target audiences. PUIs are more focused on teaching and smaller scale research. The distribution and availability of resources can affect access to necessary expertise for training and improvements in safety. In addition, the high level of undergraduates with little to no laboratory experience greatly affects the dynamics of the laboratories. This necessitates that the approach and focus of safety to vary from that of larger institutions. This symposium aims to share the diversity of lab safety issues and approaches used at PUIs.
