Lab Disasters Part I: The Radium Girls

Spread the love

Paige is our resident health and safety professional and it’s her time to shine in this episode all about the “Radium Girls”, a group of amazing women whose fight against the US Radium Corporation was instrumental in the establishment of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and modern workplace safety regulations. This is part one of two episodes we plan to do on lab disasters (up next: EXPLOSIONS!).
