Learn how to make labs safer

In April, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) issued its report, A Guide to Implementing a Safety Culture in Our Universities. This important document, as we noted at the time, is more than an urgent call to university leadership to enlist everyone, from senior administrators to incoming students, in efforts to upgrade safety practices in their labs; it also gives detailed guidance for how to go about accomplishing this. To help get those efforts underway, APLU is teaming up with the University of California (UC) Center for Laboratory Safety and the lab safety firm BioRAFT to present a free 1.5-hour webinar on 30 June for researchers, environmental health and safety workers, campus administrators, and anyone else interested in safer labs.
