Is anyone be able to forward this email to interested members of their department or local section? We are hosting the grad student lab safety workshop at National ACS for the fourth time in San Diego.

Thanks very much,
The American Chemical Society is sponsoring a workshop at the Fall National Meeting to help educate graduate students about lab safety culture and opportunities for promoting safety in their schools. Participants will be awarded a certificate that can be noted on their resumes.
Developing Graduate Student Leadership Skills in Laboratory Safety
Sunday August 25th from 3-6 p.m
Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Aqua 313
This three-hour workshop will be led by three safety program experts from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of South Dakota, and University of Connecticut. The purpose of this workshop is to help develop individualized plans for the creation or improvement of student safety programs. Other key topics include hazard assessment, risk management, safety management practices, and complementary top-down approaches. This workshop is primarily directed at graduate student issues, but faculty and staff are encouraged to participate.
Space is limited!
