CHEMICAL REACTIVITY HAZARDS, Laboratory Scale, Recognition & Control

Saturday, April 5, 2008

$50.00 for all attendees

Dr. Neal Langerman, Ph.D.

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.


The Laboratory Safety Workshop 

Friday, April 4, 2008

$375.00 non-members/ $325.00 CHAS members
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.

disposal. Focus will include discussion on recycling/reclamation techniques,
economical handling of wastes, and liability issues. Mr. Phifer has over 30

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
