NORM 2024 Safety Poster Competition

Voting takes place June 24-25 during technical sessions

NORM 2024 Safety Poster Competition

Submit your poster by June 16!

Safety is of the utmost importance in the chemical profession. Key aspects of a chemical safety culture include a safety-first mindset, respect for chemical processes, and safe laboratory experimentation.  A safety culture requires appropriate administrative support, infrastructure, curriculum, and instructor training, as well as commitment from all constituencies.  Students must be trained to plan for potential safety incidents and how to resolve them for processes they and their colleagues are performing.  The goal is the safe practice of the chemistry profession.

To help promote the safety culture in chemistry, NORM 2024 is hosting a safety poster competition.


  • Poster Content: Posters should address an issue that is of interest to a general audience in a chemistry laboratory. Posters must also be unique and not simply downloaded from the internet or generated through artificial intelligence image generators. Be creative!
