I teach a course entitled "Chemical Safety and Responsible Conduct of Research" for first-year graduate students at Texas Tech. The first half of the course deals with safety, and the second half deals with research ethics. Let me know if some of this content would be of interest.
Ralph, several years ago I developed The Safety Ethic: I value safety, work safely, prevent at-risk behavior, promote safety, and accept responsibility for safety. I published a paper in JCHS. At the SF meeting, I revisited and revised this to include Teach Safety. If you want more info let me know. Thanks. Bob Hill

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Safety and ethics training
I will have an opportunity to help develop a seminar series for a diverse group of undergraduate summer researchers (chemists, biologists, computer scientists) here at Keene State. I'm comfortable covering the topics of chemical and biological safety, but faculty have also expressed interest in an ethics session as well.
I wonder if anyone on the list has developed a seminar that connects technical ethics to lab safety? I imagine we aren't the first people to see this opportunity; after all, the ACS core value does read "Professionalism, Safety, and Ethics" as an interconnected unit. I'd be interested in how others have approached this topic for this kind of group.
Thanks for any thoughts on this.
