Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Kim Jeskie led the 12-member committee that developed new chemical safety guidelines described in the report, “Identifying and Evaluating Hazards in Research Laboratories,” released by the American Chemical Society at its 246th National Meeting and Exposition held in September.
Jeskie was also appointed last spring to serve on the National Research Council Committee on Establishing and Promoting a Culture of Safety in Academic Laboratory Research. That panel is examining chemical research laboratory safety in nonindustrial settings.
She is the 2013 past chair of the ACS Division of Chemical Health and Safety. At ORNL, Jeskie directs the Integrated Operations Support Division, where she is responsible for work planning and hazards analysis systems and tools. She lives in Harriman.
