Appendix G - Video Library
EHS Video Library
EHS has developed a safety video YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/cornellehs .
We expect to continue to add to this library, so if you have suggestions about topics for videos that would provide useful to your constituencies, please let us know at
askEHS@cornell.edu and we'll do our best to meet this need.
In addition, we maintain 3 Twitter feeds:
@cornelllabsafe - laboratory safety, nanotech and green chemistry news
@acsdchas - hazmat incidents and information
@labsustain - news related laboratory sustainability
All three of these twitter feeds are active, with 3 to 5 tweets per day.
We also recommend these videos from other campuses:
A Day in the Lab (University of California San Diego):
This video describes the importance of laboratory safety from the perspective a Principal Investigator.
