FREE Webinar | THIS WEDNESDAY - January 10, 2018 | 1:00-2:00pm Pacific Time

While many chemicals used in commerce are suspected of being harmful, only a small number are regulated. This complimentary webinar will help participants understand the resources available to help establish a chemical management system that goes beyond complying with regulations and strives to reduce or eliminate chemical hazards at the source to protect workers and the environment.
