The American Chemical Society is in the forefront of laboratory safety, and it publishes the well-respected Safety in Academic Chemistry Laboratories books. There are versions for students and faculty/administrators.
- Safety in academic chemistry laboratories: Accident prevention for college and university students
- Safety in academic chemistry laboratories: Accident prevention for faculty and administrators
Every student who handles chemicals, whether or not they are in a “chemistry” laboratory, should be familiar with the student volume, and their faculty advisors should read the complementary faculty volume.
