Organizations That Employ Chemistry Professionals
Organizations must recognize and encourage the essential connection between scientific excellence and excellence in safety.
- Safety attitude and activities must be important parts of performance evaluation and career development.
- Service on safety committees or in safety-oriented positions should be recognized and rewarded.
Organizations should expect that managers, faculty/Principal Investigators, and chemistry professionals:
- Understand their EH&S responsibilities
- Are empowered to assure a safe environment.
Organizations need to provide appropriate resources and support for safety programs as the science they use evolves, with particular attention during times of rapid change in science and laboratory practice.
