Lessons Learned:

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) today released a new safety video on the potential hazards associated with conducting research at chemical laboratories in academic institutions.  The 24-minute video focuses on three serious laboratory accidents:  the death of a lab research assistant in 2008 in a flash fire at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA); a death by accidental poisoning of a highly regarded Dartmouth College professor in 1997; and a 2010 explosion at Texas Tech University (TTU) that severely injured a graduate student, who lost three fingers in the blast and suffered eye damage.
