CHAS Poster Session
Joseph Pickel
The CHAS Poster session is open to submissions on any topic related to chemical safety. This poster session is normally scheduled during SCI-MIX (Monday, 8-10pm).

Chemistry of Disaster Recovery
Joseph Pickel
Recent disasters have highlighted the importance of chemistry on all levels of planning, response and recovery. Cleanup of chemicals released and safety of workers has emerged as a serious issue for emergency responders, and disaster preparedness/contingency planning is increasingly necessary for all laboratory research and production facilities. This symposium will present lessons learned from recent events and best practices for considering aspects of chemistry during disaster planning and response.

Collecting Safety Information for Including in Publications
Ralph Stuart
Observers have noted that the inclusion of safety information in papers in academic publications is spotty. This results in unnecessary incidents that result in the loss of science learning and sometimes result in the loss of materials and injuries to researchers. This symposium will present best practices in addressing this concern, including how to determine which safety observations are appropriate to publish and what information should be included in the papers.

Learning Laboratory Safety through Storytelling
Samuella Sigmann
Ralph Stuart
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 talks on storytelling and lessons learned and a panel discussion where audience members can share how they use their stories to teach better safety practices.

Nanomaterials: Applications, Safety Considerations, & Implications for Human Health & the Environment
Joseph Pickel

A significant amount of research has occurred in the past decade focusing on the creation, analysis and manipulation of nanomaterials. Early efforts in this field of science focused on the possibilities and the unknowns, including aspects of worker safety and environmental impact. This symposium will focus on what we learned and where the field is going.
