FYI, there's an interesting interview about lab safety training organized by an ACS Student Chapter in India at

The ACS International Student Chapter at Dr. Ambedkar College, Deekshabhoomi, in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India, held its first symposium dedicated to ensuring classmates had the safety skills they need for independent lab work in graduate school and the workplace. Titled ‰??Developing laboratory safety skills in graduating students,‰?? the summer event drew 150 undergraduate and master‰??s program students along with departmental faculty and staff.

inChemistry talked to chapter members about the seminar and what they learned about organizing a symposium.


It's great this effort spreading internationally and that they are able to use ACS materials as part of this work.
