We all agree that teaching about hazard identification and risk assessment is critical, but it can also be challenging to teach. The excellent website below is not about laboratory hazards and risks, but could be useful in a more general sense to discuss concepts using natural hazards and risks across the US. A connection to laboratories and production plants risks could then be made by mapping locations of those to the natural hazards and risks.
