The recording of the ACS webinar from earlier this month on Avoiding the Next Chemical Catastrophe: Strategies for Chemical Threat Reduction is now available at
The webinar was co-sponsored by DCHAS
The summary of the webinar is:
Every lab has chemicals that are vital to research and experimentation but these same chemicals whether you are in industry or academia, can be stolen and used by non-state actors for malevolent acts. Join Andrew Nelson of Sandia National Laboratories as he introduces strategies to mitigate the risks that small labs and universities face with theft of chemicals for chemical weapons, explosives, and illicit drug production.
What You Will Learn
‰?¢ Why chemical security is important to all labs with current examples of incidents
‰?¢ What considerations must be made in a security risk management system
‰?¢ How chemical security is a teachable skill and what resources are available to you today
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
