The Dow Chemical Co. introduced the beta version of the Dow Lab Safety Academy at the Council for Chemical Research 2013 Annual Meeting in Arlington, Va.  The academy is a digital learning environment that shares Dow's industrial safety culture and practices.

The Dow Lab Safety Academy includes dozens of videos featuring lab safety guidelines for a variety of real-life scenarios, grouped under four comprehensive lab safety categories. The website also provides a collection of resources, such as a chemical reactivity worksheet and an incident alert template, which help promote best practices for safety.

In an effort to continually improve the content and usability of the website, Dow will be seeking feedback from partner universities and other users.

Dow's best practices focus on incident prevention and on spurring a high level of engagement in safety awareness. In 2012, 266 out of Dow's 350 sites went completely injury-free, according to the company.
