In just two weeks, on March 22 and 23, 2005, CSHEMA-PRIZIM will hold an
Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) seminar and workshop! This program
is designed for anyone interested in campus and laboratory health and
safety, environmental compliance, emergency preparedness or
environmental management systems. People from educational institutions
or laboratory-based organizations - either small or large - will benefit
from attending.


The basketball crazy University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will
host this event. It will be held at the William and Ida Friday Center,
just 15 miles from the Raleigh-Durham International airport. The program
will include a day-long seminar on a variety of topics presented by
invited experts, followed by a half-day focused workshop on emergency
planning and response. You can choose to attend the one-day seminar, the
half-day workshop, or both. 


Featured topics at the seminar include: 

*        The essentials of an effective EHS program

*        How to deal with mold and indoor air quality problems

*        Lessons learned from a campuswide blackout

*        The laboratory classification system used by EPA's Research
Triangle Park laboratory

*        Elements of fume hood management

*        RCRA rule changes under consideration for academic
laboratories, explained by a speaker from the Environmental Protection


The half-day workshop will address emergency planning and the role of
EH&S in responding to all types of campus emergencies. The workshop will
help you build effective relationships with police, student health,
facility services, the local fire department and other entities when
dealing with an emergency.
