Over the past five years, laboratory safety and standards have played an increasingly important role in the higher education landscape. As ACS prepares to revise its Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs, the impact of the changing focus on safety has to be addressed in order for the Guidelines to remain current with the needs of the community. In this interactive presentation, members of the SOCED Task Force on the Revision of the Guidelines will present what is available to support chemical and laboratory safety at two-year colleges and solicit input from the audience on what ACS can do to support chemistry educators. Come share your successes, challenges, and questions on laboratory safety and standards.
