Laboratory Waste Management Workshop
CHAS Members  $325.00   Non-CHAS Members  $375.00
August 17, 2007, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Presented by Mr. Russell Phifer

This comprehensive one-day course will identify the various  
regulatory requirements that apply to laboratories that generate  
hazardous waste and provide insight into the options for on-site  
management and off-site disposal. Focus will include discussion on  
waste management systems, recycling & reclamation techniques,  
economical handling of wastes, and liability issues. We will address  
the new proposed RCRA and Academic Laboratory regulations and what  
they might mean to your facility!  Learn all the tricks that  
disposers use to increase their profit and use them to increase your  
savings. Mr. Phifer has over 25 years experience in managing  
laboratory wastes for academic and industrial laboratories and is a  
member and past chair of the ACS Task Force on Environmental Health &  

Laboratory Safety Workshop
CHAS Members  $325.00  Non-CHAS Members  $375.00
August 17, 2007, 8:30AM - 4:00PM
Presented by Jim Kaufman / Jack Breazeale, Laboratory Safety Institute

An intensive one-day seminar covering the fundamentals of lab safety  
and effective lab safety programs.  The workshop covers scope of the  
problem, accidents, legal aspects, emergency planning, chemical  
handling, chemical storage, biological and animal hazards, eye and  
face protection, chemical disposal, electrical safety, and safety  
program planning.     This seminar is intended for industrial,  
government, medical, and post secondary academic institutions.

How To Be A More Effective Chemical Hygiene Officer
CHAS Members  $325.00   Non-CHAS Members  $375.00
August 18, 2007  8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Presented by 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.

CHEMICAL REACTIVITY HAZARDS, Laboratory Scale, Recognition & Control
Special Price: $50.00 for all attendees
August 18, 2007  8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
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.
