Submission + - Chemistry Students and Postdocs Take Safety Into Their Own Hands (sciencemag.org) 1

A group of grad students and postdocs in Minnesota decided to address the issue had-on. With encouragement and funding from DOW, and some leadership from their department chairs, they're in the process of totally remaking their departments' safety cultures.
