I will be updating my undergraduate Chemical Laboratory Safety (CHEM 210) course this summer and will be glad to share the results. It is a hybrid course developed for the Moodle course management system. If you don't have a Moodle server at your institution you can get inexpensive hosting at several places. I use MoodleCloud ( for my beta testing and have been very happy with it.

All chemistry and science education majors are required to take the course. As a result of such a diverse audience, it covers a bit more than a typical safety course. For example, there is a unit on the care of laboratory animals. In addition to a general update, the revision will attempt to bring the course into compliance with the Quality Matters rubric. If you don't mind the digital equivalent of watching sausage being made, I can give you a login to the beta site beginning in mid-May. I could use all the input I can get.

   We now have the extensive ACS "Guidelines for Chemical Laboratory Safety in Academic Institutions". It would be absolutely wonderful if some entity could produce an online course with content and quizzes that could be purchased by others. I am looking for an online resource created specifically for undergraduate chemistry students that addresses topics in the ACS guideline. I realize many of these safety topics must be taught "hands on" and continuously, but it would be a good starting point.  If there is anything out there like this available for purchase, please let me know.

We have made our own using Moodle on our campus.  Do you have a platform where you can set your own course up such as Moodle, Blackboard, etc?  

Monona- you never cease to amaze me!

A colleague of a colleague is seeking some advice, and this is clearly the best place to ask for it. Thanks, Rob Toreki

Enjoyed the panel discussion! 
Are you aware of a safety certification training course for the college/university chemistry laboratory? A colleague of mine is researching it for the county college. I sent him to the ACS website, and there is a lot of information, but not a separate course. I know you have sent me links in the past for ACS webinars. Do you know of a laboratory safety training course that college students can take online and receive a certificate of completion? Flinn has them for MS and HS, but not college level.
