Friday chemical safety round-up

Let me start off this week with a little happy birthday to the Safety Zone! We began the blog a year ago and have covered more than a few safety letters along with incidents at Texas Tech, Missouri and SIUC, and Sepracor. We’ve also had Russ’ rant on online training, Neal’s favorite things, eye protection, teaching safety, fireworks, lab coats, promoting a safe lab culture, two earthquakes, and blowing up an explosives-filled house. If you’ve got suggestions for topics in the coming year, please feel free to leave a note in the comments!

Now, on to the round-up, which goes back three weeks. I’m leaving out the usual cleaning fluid and pool chemical incidents and refrigerator ammonia leaks.
