Georgetown's Joint Safety Team was established by SEM with participants from Chemistry, Biology and Physics. The advantage of the joint team is that the practical knowledge of specific research tasks is brought together with the larger overview of safety policies, procedures, and lessons learned. This team will provide participants with an opportunity to make lasting improvements in safety culture at Georgetown.
One recent contribution provided by the Joint Safety Team was a webinar entitled Tales of Lab Safety provided by the American Chemical Society. This webinar provided valuable experience on lab incidents and the programmatic elements that can be used to avoid them.
