Suzanne, I don't know if you buy your HF from Honeywell (the major producer in North American and Europe) with Headquarters in Morristown, NJ, but they hav e an excellent on-line series of training seminars: Go to: www.51.honeywell.com/sn/hfacid and click on Technical Services & T raining for On-Line HF Training Seminars. These are supposedly free to Hon eywell customers. I don't know what they charge otherwise, but I have wo rked with them over many years and they are very knowlegeable and conscient ious as a chemical supplier. I have both lectured at and attended one of t heir seminars, and the quality was excellent. For a "heads up", eventually the active H+ F- decontamination solution, Hexafluorine(R), will be available in the US (as it is in Europe and oth er parts of the world). There is also an update coming to the ISEA/ANSI Z3 58.1 Standard for Emergency Eyewashes and Showers which will be of interest to all Labs. Alan Alan H.
