Subject: Web site updates

I updated the CHAS web site at
this morning with two items:
- the latest newsletter from the Safety and Health Division of the  
American Institute of Chemical Engineers and
- pdfs of the powerpoint files from last Friday's CHAS symposium at  
the ACS Northeast Regional Meeting.
The topics of these presentations were:
	=95 Chemical Safety Levels Risk Assessment - Ralph Stuart, 
of Vermont, with a draft risk assessment worksheet in Excel format
	=95 Transferring Air-Sensitive Reagents - Mark Potyen, Aldrich 
	=95 When the Chemistry Department and EHS Journey Down the Same 
Together - N. Gail Hall, Boston College
	=95 Risk Assessments for the use of Hazardous Materials in 
Animals -  
Erik Talley, Weill Medical College of Cornell University with two  
sample Risk Assessment forms in PDF format: one for standard  
precautions and for one for use of MPTP
	=95 Update on Prudent Practices in the Laboratory - Peter 
Yale University

There a couple more of these files in the works. Note that in addition  

to the powerpoint files, two of these presentations have sample forms  

for risk assessment in the general chemistry laboratory and in animal  

handling situations.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
