#Chemsafety programming at #ACSDC

The 254th ACS National Meeting starts on Sunday in Washington, D.C. Here’s what’s planned for chemical and laboratory safety; the Division of Chemical Health & Safety has its usual CHAS-At-A-Glance ready for printing. You can also find CHAS and the Committee on Chemical Safety in the Expo at booth 1038. I will be giving two talks at the meeting. I’ve highlighted them with the Safety Zone flask below. Note: I did not have time to proofread this after putting it together. If there’s something that you want to see, double-check the time and location in the actual program!
