Learning laboratory safety through storytelling
Invited Symposium and panel discussion
SERMACS 2017, November 10, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon
Abstract deadline: August 21st
Storytelling is a powerful way to convey history and culture to the next generation. Most anyone who has been in a research laboratory has at least one "story" about an incident or near miss. In the 21st century safety culture, it is becoming more acceptable to share and learn from these. This symposium will offer a mix of some invited talks around storytelling and lessons learned and a panel discussion where audience members can share how they use their "stories" to teach better safety practices.
Invited presentations will be 20 minutes in length. We are requesting presentation topics such as, but not limited to, those listed below for this symposium.
