Task Force for Safety Education Guidelines

The Committee on Chemical Safety (CCS) has formed the new Task Force for Safety Education Guidelines (TFSEG). We have included partners that have a significant role in chemistry education to help produce reports and guidelines that will be valued in the chemistry community. The ACS Education Division and the ACS leadership has had a pivotal role in supporting this project.

The purpose of the TFSEG is:

“To develop guidelines for laboratory safety education from middle school through high school, through undergraduate school, and graduate schools, as well as for faculty and staff. These guidelines would identify safety topics and areas that should be taught and competencies that should be tested at various levels throughout the educational process.”
