Two-day courses: April 6-7, April 14-15, April 28-29, May 12-13, May 18-19
Provides an in-depth look at the fundamentals of lab safety and effective lab safety programs. You will learn to identify and manage common laboratory hazards; many of which you may never have considered. Using a “real world” approach to safety issues in the laboratory, our seasoned instructors will illustrate how to reduce the likelihood of injury, illness, accidents and lawsuits while providing you with simple, inexpensive (even free) things that you can do to have an even better safety program.

Webinars (60-90 minutes in length at 1PM)

Complying with OSHA Lab Standard: April 23
The twelve parts of the standard are outlined and discussed. Special attention will be given to defining a Chemical Hygiene Officer and the eight elements required in your Chemical Hygiene Plan.

Chemical Handling and Storage May 7th
There are four properties of chemicals which make them dangerous. We’ll review those properties and draw the connection to prudent practices, protective equipment and facilities to minimize the risk. Then we’ll discuss the six critical areas of chemical storage
One-Day Seminars
Biosafety in the Laboratory: April 20th
an introduction to the principles of biosafety, including guidelines and regulations, decontamination and disinfection, as well as disposal and shipment of biological materials. Facility and equipment design, medical surveillance and risk assessments will also be covered. Participants will be introduced to key biosafety reference materials and learn how to use them to perform basic biological risk assessments and establish appropriate levels of containment. We will review best practices to minimize the risk of laboratory-acquired infections and standard precautions for proper handling of microorganisms. Discussions will be limited to guidelines for safely handling microorganisms at both biosafety level 1 (BSL1) and biosafety level 2 (BSL2) with minimal introduction to biosafety level 3 (BSL3).

Complying with MA's new OSHA Regulations: May 4th
This intensive one-day seminar covers the fundamentals of lab safety while addressing the most critical safety issues in our school science laboratories and classrooms. Legal safety standards and professional prudent practices will be a basis for much of the discussion.

How to be a more Effective CHO: April 8th
A new CHO or an “old” one, will find something to put to real use in this fast-paced presentation. This seminar was developed by Russ Phifer, Jim Kaufman, and George Wahl (RJG Associates) for the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Health and Safety as the prep course for the National Registry of Certified Chemists (NRCC) CHO Certification Exam. Bring your CHP so it can be reviewed.
