More policies for academic chemical safety: over at STEM_Wonk's

STEM_Wonk has more policies for academic chemical safety. I like them all, but I especially like this:
Another great teaching avenue for chemical safety and proper preps would be to publish in the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVe).  Here is a chance for a publication! After watching a few of the videos, this seems like a wonderful way to show the handling of a hazardous or (even difficult) procedures in the context of actual research that was carried out for a publication. These are peer reviewed journal articles that are presented in video format in order to bridge the complexity of translating what’s actually done at the bench into a written prep. 
I like it, I really do. Benchfly has lots of technique videos as well, but mostly biology-oriented. Go on over there and read what she has to say.
