However, ventilation is only effective when designed and used
appropriately. The purpose of this workshop is to provide the
laboratory professional with sufficient information to evaluate their
current system and use it effectively. This presentation is developed
specifically for researchers and laboratory professionals. It will be
valuable to anyone who wishes to maximize the effectiveness of their
current system or participate in the design, construction or
renovation of new systems.

Saturday, August 27, 2005
Dr. James Kaufman, Mr. Russell Phifer, Dr. George Wahl, Jr.

Take a close look at the Chemical Hygiene Officer position, and
prepare at the same time for the NRCC -CHO Certification exam to be
held 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 involve in safety to dealing with
regulatory concerns. The course covers all of the content areas of
the certification exam, 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.
