Perhaps you did not have a chance to attend the D-CHAS session on "Ask Dr. Safety -- Reproductive Hazards in the Laboratory" presented by Neal Langerman (Advanced Chemical Safety; San Diego) and myself (TCMTS, Inc., Colorado School of Public Health; Laramie, Denver) at the ACS meeting last week in San Francisco?
Mostly, we presented a few basic data on the issues and the rest was a lively audience participation discussion.  I think Neal has the most recent iteration of our slides and I'd certainly be willing to share them if he is.  Most of my part of it came out of work on an update of the ATSDR Case Study in Environmental Medicine:  Reproductive and Developmental Hazards, which is still in Agency review, but will eventually be available on the ATSDR website ( and also will have continuing education education credits for certain healthcare providers.
Since you are in San Diego, it might be well to contact Neal Langerman as he is local.

Hello All,


I’m wondering if anyone has dealt with training scientists (chemists and biologists) on potential reproductive hazards in the laboratory.


I work for a biotech company, and currently we have 7 pregnant employees (110 employees total). All of these employees are in the medicinal chemistry group.  It has been my experience that the pregnant employees are very cautious and knowledgeable about the hazards they are working with, however not all of their co-workers are.


My company would like me to present a training or seminar of some sort that educates and informs all laboratory workers of the reproductive hazards they work with.


Has anyone else done this before? Any resources or suggestions?


Thank you.
