entertaining, and an excellent forum to speak openly about safety
problems in your workplace.

discussion on recycling/reclamation techniques, economical handling
of wastes, and liability issues. Mr. Phifer has over 25 years

laboratories and is a member and former chair of the ACS Task Force

Take a close look at the Chemical Hygiene Officer position, and

the next day. Kaufman, Phifer and Wahl give a different slant to
safety issues in the laboratory, focusing on what you do and how you
can do it better. The presenters bring a wide variety of experience
to the table, but the real stars of the workshop are you - past
attendees note the interactive approach focusing on their problems,
from getting administrators involved in safety to dealing with
regulatory concerns. The course covers all of the content areas of
the certification exam (presented on Sunday through NRCC), including
a sample test in the same format as the real one. Whether you are a
new Chemical Hygiene Officer or an "old" one, you will find something
to put to real use in this fast-paced presentation.
