Friday chemical safety round-up

Chemical health and safety news from the past week:

Fires and explosions:

Leaks, spills, and other exposures:

Not covered: meth labs; ammonia leaks; incidents involving floor sealants, cleaning solutions, or pool chemicals; transportation spills; and fires from oil, natural gas, or other fuels.

And yours truly is now off to Orlando for Pittcon! I’ll be speaking about lab safety on Sunday, in a symposium on “Looking Ahead to a New Era of Analytical Chemistry Education.” James Kaufman of the Laboratory Safety Institute will also facilitate a networking session on lab safety that day. On Tuesday, Just Another Electron Pusher blogger Christine Herman will facilitate a session on “Chemistry Careers Beyond the Bench,” and one of the panelists is C&EN Senior Editor Celia Arnaud.
