Subject: Boston Workshop schedule now available
Comments: To: SAFETY

The Chemical Health and Safety workshop schedule for the American  
Chemical Society national meeting in Boston this August 17 and 18 is  
now available at the Division's web site

In addition to our usual offerings, of special note this meeting is a  
workshop on
CHEMICAL REACTIVITY HAZARDS, Laboratory Scale, Recognition & Control
Presented by: Neal Langerman, Ph.D.

Chemical reactivity hazards contribute to a significant number of  
serious incidents in laboratories. This workshop will provide  
participants with the knowledge and skill to screen processes for  
potential hazards, recognize when reactive hazards are present, and  
implement appropriate controls to reduce the risk of an incident  
associated with run-away chemical reactions. Workshop attendees will  
review case studies of actual incidents and do screening examples in  
order to understand the screening and recognition process. Group  
discussions of control methods will allow participants to share their  
experiences and to evaluate methods for controlling reactivity risks.

This workshop is offered as part of the Chemical Reactivity Hazards  
Management Alliance, of which the American Chemical Society is a  
signatory. Because of this there is a special registration price of  
only $50 for this session.

More information on this workshop can be obtained by contacting  

Thanks for your interest in CHEMICAL SAFETY!
