Participate in the Competition!April 2019 | CHEM & IME
Compete for awards, fame, and excellence in the JRSI’s Peer Lab Walkthrough Competition! All labs throughout the Department of Chemistry and the Institute for Molecular Engineering can sign up to participate, win fabulous prizes, and secure bragging rights. The premise? Simple: A group of your peers will tour your lab looking both for safety mishaps and clever ingenuity—safest lab (normalized to your science) wins!
About Lab Walkthroughs
Our peers are often our best resources. This competition is primarily a collaborative educational opportunity for our labs to trade safety knowledge, creative fixes, and learned lessons. They do not carry any regulatory authority, and do not involve any reporting. Scoring will be normalized for your lab’s hazard categories and will involve both positive points for innovative, proactive solutions and negative points for inevitable mishaps. We will work hard to make sure that your walkthrough is scheduled for a day and time that does not interrupt your lab’s science.
