One-day course

I was being completely honest when I say that your institute changed my teaching career. After I left the two-day session I implemented so many new rules and realized how much change I could make. I made a student lab safety manual, a faculty lab safety manual, have my entire first lab be all about lab safety, and had the honor of joining the ASM lab safety committee. None of this would have happened without you!

I also never forgot that in the wake of the college not supporting me that you reduced the tuition.

—Heather Townsend, Ph.D.
Associate Biology Professor
Community College of Rhode Island

I found your presentation engaging, informative, and exceptionally motivating. Your presentation has provided me with a solid foundation of knowledge and a wealth of resources to bring back to my lab. Over the course of the two day seminar I came up with 100+ action items.

—Jennifer Wachholz, Laboratory Technician
Department of Biological Sciences, Santa Barbara City College

When I left research science and ventured into the college environment to become the chemical hygiene officer, I took the class in Natick on laboratory safety and it was a gamechanger for me. I continued on to the CHO course before taking my exam and that too was critical in my safety education. In large part to those two courses, we have made large strides in fostering a positive safety culture here at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Very informative and a good pace. Great that webinar is an option otherwise I would not be able to attend. —Dan Hammersley, Lab Safety Officer, Minnesota Department of Public Health

Oozing with knowledge, entertaining and with good sense of humor. They have the patience to really check and comment on the answers in the quizzes.

About five years ago, I attended your course. At the time, our school didn’t have a lab safety program except a few incomplete safety procedures here and there. From attending your course, I started to develop the lab safety manual including a chemical hygiene plan . . . it did take five years to build. All started from your course. Thank you!
