P881: Creating safety cultures in academic institutions

Robert Hill (Battelle, USA)

This paper summarizes the report of the ACS’ Committee on Chemical Safety – Creating Safety Cultures in Academic Institutions.  Seven important elements found in strong safety cultures are discussed.  Providing more education in chemical and laboratory safety is emphasized.  Fifteen recommendations are suggested that can assist academic institutions in strengthening their safety cultures.  The report also solicits nominations for “bright spots” – institutions meeting criteria that demonstrate strong safety cultures.
