Do you find yourself unable to get Washington DC for the National Meeting? No worries! Midwest Chemical Safety is offering a pair of chemical safety workshops in conjunction with the Southwest Regional ACS meeting late this fall in Lubbock Texas:
“Research Without Rules: Process Safety Management for Research and Small-Scale Chemical Processes” will be offered on SUNDAY, October 29th, 2017: RWOR expands general risk management foundations by applying principles found in OSHA’s Process Safety Management Standard to the research and small-scale chemistry community. We will fist discuss reactive chemistry hazard identification, then dive into risk assessment on a variety of scenarios from the bench top to pilot plant and large-scale experimentation in a research environment. We will thoroughly discuss change management and what change management should look like in a fast-paced research environment.
“Effective Chemical Safety Management for the Chemical Hygiene Officer: A Risk Based Perspective” will be offered on MONDAY, October 30th, 2017: After an introduction to the Laboratory Standard and Chemical Hygiene Plans, we will cover introductory toxicology, laboratory chemical hood evaluation and standard operating procedure development. We will then move to a deep discussion of hazard and risk then use risk management tools to evaluate risk for common research tasks and field work. The day is wrapped up with a session of “Ask Dr. Safety” so that participants can get their EHS questions answered before they leave.
Course price is $325.00 per course, SWRM is providing lunch! You do NOT need to register for the meeting to take the courses.
