The popular booklet, “Safety in Academic Laboratories” (SACL), is published by the Committee on Chemical Safety (CCS) of the American Chemical Society. The most recent edition is the 7th and was published in 2003. The CCS has begun the process of revising SACL with the expectation of publishing the 8th edition in 2015. This poster will outline the revision process and plans for changes to SACL. The main purpose of this poster is to engage chemical educators in a discussion of their likes and dislikes regarding this publication and to solicit ideas for things to change and not to change.
