Friday chemical safety round up

I’ll be in Yolo County again today for the end of former University of California, Davis, chemist David Snyder’s preliminary hearing on explosives and firearms charges. Watch Twitter for updates and here on Monday for a recap.

Fires and explosions:

Leaks, spills, and other exposures:

Not covered (usually): meth labs; incidents involving floor sealants, cleaning solutions, or pool chemicals; transportation spills; things that happen at recycling centers (dispose of your waste properly, people!); and fires from oil, natural gas, or other fuels

  1. Jyllian, I just want to say thanks for these news roundups. I’m responsible for tracking down and informing my team about safety news each week, and your excellent roundups really point me towards some chemical safety news I might otherwise miss. I learn so much from your blog generally, and these posts are a great resource for us!
