We've excerpted three vital segments of the video and invite you to watch any or all of them. You will see evidence of systemic breakdowns, procedural breakdowns, and breakdowns in communication.
We are also using this opportunity to provide a one-page list of things you can do right now to enhance safety in your lab.
In addition, we've included an opportunity to comment on the video or any element of health and safety at the U of A. We are all managers of risk and I believe we can always strive to do even better.

The final excerpt features an explosion in a lab at Texas Tech that critically injured a grad student. This excerpt also includes the conclusions and recommendations of the Chemical Safety Board regarding safety in university laboratories. This segment is 7:13 in length.
