Duquesne Safety Initiative

The Duquesne Safety Initiative was developed in response to the Dow Safety Initiative, a partnership between Dow Chemical Corporation, the University of Minnesota, the University of California-Santa Barbara, and Penn State University, to change the safety culture in academic research laboratories. The main focus of the initiative establishes a team of students and faculty committed to developing programs which promote safe laboratory environments and procedures fit for carrying out cutting-edge research.
