EHS Safety Event Welcomes Research Community

Oct. 4, 2021

EHS is holding a gala Lab Safety Homecoming event at McDonnell Hall on Oct. 26. The celebration features games, prizes, vendors and a catered lunch and talk by lab safety expert Mary Beth Mulcahy.

EHS Lab Safety Homecoming: Oct. 26, 2021 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Save the Date

Safety Homecoming and Lunch

A safety homecoming recalibration and celebration will take place in the Brush Gallery of McDonnell Hall, complete with health and safety related games and information as well as vendors demonstrating products and services. The event runs from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. The talk will take place at noon in A01 McDonnell. Box lunches will be provided.

The "homecoming" and "recalibration" theme recognizes the time of year as well as Princeton's welcoming back researchers to full-time, in-person activities. We all need to recalibrate after a year of working under constraining and difficult conditions, and thoughts turn to homecoming as we return to beloved spaces every fall to celebrate past and future glories. 

Be sure not to miss the crowning of this year's Dale Grieb Safety Award winner and earn a cool Princeton-themed T-shirt by visiting all of the exhibit tables. Also, meet Coach, a service dog for first responders and the newest member of the Princeton Public Safety team!
