All: There is still time to register for the two chemical safety workshops being held in Springfield, IL, September 21 and 22, 2017. These are confirmed to take place
Effective Chemical Safety Management: A Risk-Based Approach (September 21): Designed for those responsible for chemical safety in the workplace, this workshop will introduce the Laboratory Standard and the effective Chemical Hygiene Plans. We will cover introductory toxicology, laboratory chemical hood evaluation, standard operating procedure development in a research environment and waste management fundamentals. We will have an in-depth discussion of hazard and risk and use a number of risk management tools to evaluate common teaching, research and field work. The day is wrapped up with a session of “Ask Dr. Safety” so that participants can get their EH&S Questions answered before they leave.
Research Without Rules: Process Safety Management for Research and Small-Scale Chemical Processes (September 22): This workshop is a follow-on to the Effective Chemical Safety Management Workshop. With a firm foundational Chemical Hygiene Plan already in place, Research Without Rules expands on reactive chemical safety identification, and risk management foundations found in OSHA’s Process Safety Management Standard and how that looks in a research and small-scale process environment. We will introduce four risk assessment tools (LabRAT, LabHAZOP, LabFMEA and What-If) to common research, scale-up and pilot-plant operations. We will thoroughly cover change management and how effective management-of-change can be accomplished in a fast-paced research environment.
Each workshop is priced at $325 for ACS/AIHA members; $350 for non-members. Take both for $500 (ACS/AIHA members); $550 (non-members)
Registration is now open at http://midwestchemsafety.com/workshop.php . You will NOT be billed for the workshops until they are confirmed to be presented so your credit card is not tied up.
