If you are looking for that type of info, there is an excellent ACS site on this. Here you will find a specific guidance on field of Chemical Health and Safety.

Hi Jim,
Had a quick look at the LSI pages and courses offered. Thanks for pointing us in that direction. We do not need the Lab Safety content so much (we are an accredited lab, 15189 and 17025) but rather the key topics that we can touch on to excite the younger minds with regard to careers in chemistry. At the second year University level (7 lectures), I didn't want to swamp them too much with instrumental analysis (which is our forte).

Kind Regards,

Dear BVK,

You might want to consider taking one of LSI??s online lab safety courses. Please let me know if you would like more information.

Where are you located?

Subject: Re: [DCHAS-L] Assistance with Introductory Notes/Topics in OHS for Undergraduates

Dear Colleagues,

I would like assistance with basic (introductory) notes or topics in Occupational Health and Safety to cover in a 7-lecture course for second-year (quite green) undergraduate students in Applied Chemistry. Our lab is a support lab for occupational health practitioners; so we do all the chemical exposures (inorganic and organic) analyses in various matrices (blood, urine, water, tissue, hair...).

So the seven lectures are to provide an analytical chemistry applied aspect to OHS.

Regards

BVK

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.
• What is storytelling?
• How does it involve us/engage others
• How it can be used in student training, teaching, and/or presenting demonstrations
• Compilation of stories from personal experiences from students, staff, or faculty specific to an activity, career, and/or location having to do with incidents, OSHA/EPA regulations, job activities, or research.
• Staff and/or faculty training
• How can storytelling be integrated into Policy

If you are interested in presenting a paper in this broad interest symposium, please let us know (email Mark or Sammye off the list). We will have room for the keynote talk and 4 talks. We are anticipating that the talks will be followed by a panel discussion with audience involvement.

Submitted abstracts may also be considered and can be entered into MAPS at http://www.sermacs2017.org/
