Dr. James Kaufman or Dr. W.H. (Jack) Breazeale

This classic presentation on laboratory safety by the Laboratory  
Safety Institute (LSI) has been attended by thousands of safety  
professions. With experience in both industrial and academic  
laboratories, Jim and Jack give a "real world" approach to safety  
issues in the laboratory. Their stories are both interesting and  
pertinent. Interactive demonstrations help you deal with everything  
from creative wiring in the lab to administrators without a vision of  
what it means to have safe workplace. Highly entertaining, and an  
excellent forum to speak openly about safety problems in your workplace.

McCormick Place, Chicago, IL

$375.00 non-members/ $325.00 CHAS members
Dr. James Kaufman, Mr. Russell Phifer, Dr. George H.Wahl, Jr.

Take a close look at the Chemical Hygiene Officer position, and  
prepare at the same time for the "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 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. You can request an application  
packet for the Chemical Hygiene Officer certification examination by  
National Registry of Certified Chemists online at
