Hello all,

We have discussed our 1st paper of the semester in The Art and State of Safety Journal Club over the last 2 weeks! We had a great general conversation about Laboratory Safety Teams in academic research departments.

If you would like to see notes from these 2 meetings about the paper "Starting and Sustaining a Laboratory Safety Team (LST)", please check out this link on the ACS CHAS website:

Next, we will be starting the discussion on our next paper called "Lessons Learned from the Creation and Development of a Researcher-Led Safety Organization at The University of Chicago." Next week, we will start with a typed discussion on a Table Read version of the paper. The following week, the 1st author of the paper and a member of our Journal Club's organizing group, Sarah Zinn, will be leading the discussion!

If you are interested in checking out the paper early, you can find that here:
