The chemical safety workshops in conjunction with the Southwest Regional ACS Meeting (SWRM-2017) are confirmed!
October 29: Research Without Rules: 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.
October 30: Effective Chemical Safety Management: 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.
Registration remains open at the SWRM-2017 website: www.swrm2017.org . Registration for the full meeting is NOT required, but you must use the paper form and send it to the American Chemical Society Regional Meetings Office (fax/email) register for the workshops only.
See you in Texas!
