In addition to the Symposium Frankie and Tim are organizing, CHAS is considering a 1Z2 day workshop, on the Saturday prior to the meeting - 23 March.

If you were to attend the conference, would you consider also attending this workshop? This is not a commitment on your part, rather I am trying to estimate the interest among our members


Strategies for Hazard Communication in the Laboratory - Academic and Industrial

This is a half day workshop to provide those responsible for the implementation of Hazard Communication in their work environment with information related to recent changes in OHSA's Hazard Communication Standard. These recent changes, March 26, 2012, adopted several aspects related to global harmonization of precautionary warnings. The revised standard includes: revised criteria for classification of chemical hazards, new labeling provisions, a specified format for safety data sheets, revisions to definitions, and new training requirements. The new labeling and data sheets require the use of standardized signal words, pictograms, hazard statements and precautionary statements. The workshop will focus on the changes and requirements of the new rule as well as provide tips and tools for the implementation of the new requirements. The workshop is designed for the practioner that is responsible for translating the standard to individuals that work in teaching, research or !
industrial laboratories.
