CHEMICAL REACTIVITY HAZARDS, Laboratory Scale, Recognition & Control Presented by: Neal Langerman, Ph.D. $325.00 non-members/$275.00 CHAS members The Process Safety Alliance, in cooperation with U.S. OSHA is presenting a workshop titled CHEMICAL REACTIVITY HAZARDS: Laboratory Scale Recognition & Control. The objective of the workshop is to provide participants with the knowledge and skill to screen processes for potential hazards, recognize when reactive hazards are present, and implement appropriate controls to reduce the risk of an incident associated with the hazards. Workshop attendees will review case studies of actual incidents and do screening examples in order to understand the screening and recognition process. Group discussions of control methods will allow participants to share their experiences and to evaluate methods for controlling reactivity risks.

as provide insight into the options foron-site management and off-sitedisposal. Focus will include discussionon recycling/reclamation techniques,economical handling of wastes andliability issues. Mr. Phifer has over 25years experience in managinglaboratory wastes for academic andindustrial laboratories and is a memberand former chair of the ACS TaskForce on Environmental Health &Safety.

How to Be a More Effective ChemicalHygiene OfficerDr. James Kaufman, Mr. RussellPhifer

$375.00 non-members/$325.00CHAS membersTake a close look at the ChemicalHygiene Officer position, and prepareat the same time for the ‘‘CHO’’Certification exam to be held the nextday. Kaufman, Phifer, and Wahl give adifferent slant to safety issues in thelaboratory, focusing on what you doand how you can do it better. Thepresenters bring a wide variety ofexperience to the table, but the real starsof the workshop are you – pastattendees note the interactive approachfocusingon their problems, fromgettingadministrators involved in safety todealing with regulatory concerns. Thecourse covers all of the content areas ofthe certification exam (presented onSunday through NRCC), including a


sample test in the same format as thereal one. Whether you are a newChemical Hygiene Officer or an ‘‘old’’one, you will find something to put toreal use in this fast-paced presentation.You can request an application packetfor the Chemical Hygiene OfficerCertification examination by NationalRegistry of Certified Chemists online atnrcc6.org/

The Laboratory Safety WorkshopDr. James Kaufman or Dr. W.H.(Jack) Breazeale

$325.00 non-members/$275.00CHAS membersThis classic presentation on laboratorysafety by the Laboratory SafetyInstitute (LSI) has been attended bythousands of safety professionals. Withexperience in both industrial andacademic laboratories, Jim and Jackgive a ‘‘real world’’ approach to safetyissues in the laboratory. Their storiesare both interesting and pertinent.Interactive demonstrations help youdeal with everything from creativewiring in the lab to administratorswithout a vision of what it means tohave a safe workplace. This is a highlyentertaining and excellent forum tospeak openly about safety problems inyour workplace.

Using Job Hazard Analysis in theResearch LabSamuella Sigmann

Journal of Che

$325.00 non-members/$275.00CHAS membersThe Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is onemethod to consider hazardsassociated with lab research and guidethe control of those hazards. A JHAcan assist the researcher in uncoveringpotential hazards in synthesis,instrumental studies, physicalmanipulations and more. Identifiedhazards can then be mitigated oreliminated. In this workshop,participants will learn the basicprinciples, required elements, andformat of the common JHA. Examplesof completed tools such as nitric aciddigestion of metal samples, cryogenicwork, and HPLC with THF/DCM/Water will be utilized to examine thetechnique. Each participant willcreate a ready to use JHA based onsome task specifically applicable totheir laboratory. Because you willprepare a ready to implement JHA,attendees should come with a specificidea of a chemical or process theywould to investigate. A laptop or tabletmight be useful for this workshop ifyou would like to create your JHAdigitally
