    I have been searching the web for a good lab safety film. While there were some good ones on UTube, either the sound is bad or in some cases they are more comedy than educational. There are some safety films from Universities, but most of these covered too many topics and unusual equipment. I am looking for a film that covers most of the basic 20 to 30 main points in lab safety. Currently, I run through a set of PowerPoint slides which is a bit dry for the students. Any suggestions! I am willing to purchase if the price is reasonable, but naturally free is better.
