Established in 1983, the Howard Fawcett Chemical Health and Safety Award recognizes outstanding individual contributions to the field of Chemical Health and Safety. The award consists of a commemorative plaque and a $500 prize for expenses so that the recipient can be present at an award symposium at the fall ACS national meeting. The recipient is expected to invite presenters for the award symposium. See also previous award recipients.
The award is to be granted for outstanding contributions in the field of chemical health and safety without regard to age, nationality, race, gender or race.
Each nomination must be accompanied by a letter, no more than five pages long, that;
- Details the nominee’s accomplishments,
- Identifies the work to be recognized,
- Gives a biographical sketch of the nominee, and
- Lists publications by the nominee.
Reprints of not more than five publications may be included. Books or tapes should not be included in the nomination package; abstracts or published reviews may be used in their place, or in place of extensive publications.
Six copies of all items used for 2017 nominations should be sent by December 1, 2016 to the Awards Committee Chair to be certain that the award can be announced at the Spring Executive Committee meeting and plans can be made for the Fall Meeting Awards Symposium.
