Ralph -  First of all - the safety newsletter is a great idea!  

As I am sure you are aware, NSTA has a safety blog ( ) where science teachers can lay out their concerns and secure a direct response from me as the Safety Blogger and others.  I also do a monthly blog commentary.  Point is - I think you can get a flavor of the safety issues out in the field if you take a look as some of the questions and commentaries.

Just a thought -

As the incoming chair of the DCHAS membership committee, I and others are working with ACS staff to develop an ACS wide safety newsletter. The general idea is to have a bi-monthly opt-in newsletter geared to the interests of ACS membership on safety issues. To help us further develop the concept, we are interested in:

1) examples of safety-oriented newsletters that you find useful for this audience, particularly those you produce yourselves or other non-commercial sources; or

2) suggestions for safety topics that you would like to highlight for the ACS membership as a whole (as opposed to the DCHAS membership who read and make use of DCHAS-L style information, which is not curated with the chemistry audience in mind).

We will focus on highlighting ACS resources in the newsletter, but are interested in other sources of helpful safety information for the practicing chemist as well.

Thanks for any suggestions in this regard.
