Two more 2 cents...

These are for when you start to have some knowledge under your belt:
If you are in an setting where you have the opportunity - start teaching chemical safety education. Teaching is still one the best ways to learn.
If you are in the ACS, volunteer to work on projects within the chemistry enterprise that are safety related.

In reviewing the questions that have already been submitted for today's webinar, I noticed one that asks for suggestions for mid-career chemistry professionals to learn more about technical and/or regulatory aspects of chemical health and safety. This is a common question when we conduct an ACS webinar and I thought I would ask for suggestions from DCHAS-L as to what you have found to be the most valuable resources in this regard.

I don't know if we'll be able to develop a complete answer to this before today's webinar, but we will have the opportunity to follow up with registered attendees, so I'd appreciate any suggestions that you have on this topic.

Thanks for any help with this.

We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do everything with nothing. Teresa Arnold paraphrased from Konstantin Josef Jire€?ek (1854 ‰?? 1918)
