GT has been working with ExxonMobil since 2013 on their PALS (Partners in Academic Lab Safety) initiative. GT is one of the 6 selected university partners in PALS, whose aim is to help academic institutions make further improvements in their R&D safety standards through interactions with ExxonMobil safety professionals.
The next PALS-related visit will be on Feb 11, 2016. Tim Alford and Debi Davis will visit us. They will offer a lecture on how to conduct hazard assessment and safe experimental design from 11:00-12:00 that Thursday Feb 11.
This is a great opportunity to get insight into how industrial R&D labs operate from a safety standpoint and to learn from their practices. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
