Chemical Warning Labels

How can you develop your safety skills and support a safe lab to work in everyday whether you are in industry or academia? In 2018, the American Chemical Society recognized that chemical safety as an integral part of its strategic mission. During this free interactive broadcast, join ACS President Dr. Peter Dorhout as well as three experts in a lively discussion of how this initiative influences their roles as educators, industry and graduate students as well as the valuable new ACS lab safety resources for both the teaching and research chemistry laboratory.

What You Will Learn
