Safety in Academic Labs

The Sheri Sangji case at UCLA is a horrible tragedy and confronts an uncomfortable topic for many chemists – safety in academic labs.  Often with professors pushing students to complete work as fast as possible proper safety precautions are not taken, people are not trained well, and tragedies can occur.  ChemBark made a post this weekend about what is currently happening in the Sangji case and how the chemical community is failing to use this terrible event as a chance to “fix the culture of safety in academia.”  I couldn’t agree more and highly recommend reading ChemBark’s post.
