These symposia will consist of invited papers only.

This symposium provides the attendees the opportunity to ask questions and discuss a broad chemical safety topic.  The topic for San Francisco is “From Rules to Risk: Realistic Research Safety.” Research scientists push back against safety rules imposed by the campus based on their perception that safety unduly interferes with research.  This session will explore that perception, examine ways to overcome the resistance, and offer approaches to chemical safety which are readily incorporated into the research workflow.

Please join the Division of Chemical Health and Safety as we recognize outstanding achievements in health and safety.
