Have a safety "war story" with a sharp point? Have you had a "safety fail" or close call because you never learned key information? If you know a safety fact or practice "they" should really teach in school, why not become "them" and teach the world about it?
"Safety Knowledge I Wish I Had Learned in School" is the topic of a session the Division of Chemical Health and Safety is sponsoring at the Spring 2020 ACS meeting in Philadelphia. You are invited to submit abstracts for a short 5-7 minute presentation, with similar time made available for questions and discussion.
This format allows you to present essential lessons you learned "the hard way," without having to stretch the material to a full-length presentation. Can you come up with two-three slides on your safety story? You can present in Philadelphia!
Submit now, so that others can benefit from your experience.
P.S. If you have a longer presentation that concerns safety awareness during the transition to industrial employment, please consider the related symposium, Transition from the Academic Laboratory to Industrial Employment.
