The Process Safety Alliance, in cooperation with U.S. OSHA is  
presenting a workshop titled CHEMICAL REACTIVITY HAZARDS: Laboratory  
Scale Recognition & Control.  The objective of the workshop is to  
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 the hazards.  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.

Date:		August 18, 2007
Location:	Boston, MA, Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel, room to be  
announced.
Time:		0830  1430 (8:30 am  2:30 pm), lunch is not included.
