FYI, the CHAS Division and ACS Committee on Chemical Safety are partnering with ACS webinars for another safety panel discussion on Thursday, July 8, 2021 **At_Symbol_Here** 2-3pm ET.

Laboratory science in the 21st Century is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, which is presenting new challenges in designing and operating lab buildings that house this science. Designing laboratories that allow for safe and efficient research requires input and collaboration between researchers, architects, engineers and lab planners. Once constructed, maintaining safe working conditions in these environments starts with proper commissioning and turnover to facilities staff followed by ongoing communication with the laboratory population.

Join EHS Office Associate Director Michael Labosky of MIT, Laboratory Ventilation Specialist Ellen Sweet of Cornell University, and Organic Lab Supervisor Melinda Box of N.C. State University as they explore the challenges of designing and operating labs from multiple perspectives, using concrete examples from the real world. During this free interactive webinar discover how to identify and address safety problems related to laboratory facilities as they arise and much more.

This ACS Webinar is moderated by Environmental Safety Manager Ralph Stuart of Keene State College and is co-produced with the ACS Division of Chemical Safety and the ACS Committee on Chemical Safety.

What You Will Learn:

? How to use the lab ventilation system to work more safely
? Who is involved in designing safe laboratory spaces and the practical considerations involved in this work
? How lab buildings were built in the past and why it is important for researchers to be engaged in the design process

You can register for the webinar here for free at

We would appreciated it if you could let your laboratory facility designers and operators know about this professional development opportunity as well.
