Researchers have a responsibility for the safe and ethical handling of chemicals they work with every day in the lab. However, they can be overwhelmed when it comes to understanding safety-related laws, policies, and regulations. What are researchers expected to know? What rules are they required to follow? What are the legal consequences if they are broken? Join program area experts Kali Miller, Mary Beth Mulcahy, and Ralph Stuart to explore the answers to these questions.
