This subcommittee is in transition. We are currently developing a framework for a communications strategy to be used by the Committee on Chemical Safety. The subcommittee is also developing a template for a periodic newsletter to be proposed at the New Orleans meeting.
Past Projects and Publications
- Development of a draft Chemical Safety Communication System.
Many of these ideas have or will be incorporated into the ACS Safety web presence.
- Evaluate the presence (or absence) of chemical safety in a large number of chemical research journals.
The results of this survey were cited by many journal editorial boards (including ACS journals) as impetus to require that authors address safety concerns specifically in their manuscripts.
