Developed by Dr. Jim Kaufman, this flagship lab safety course has been presented to hundreds of scientists, educators, and others over the course of 40 years in 30 countries, and it’s loaded with every safety topic in the book. In three days (eight hours each), we’ll take you through blood-borne pathogens, compressed gases, glassware, OSHA standards, radiation, record-keeping, ventilation and more! The course includes workshops, movies, and lots of time for Q & A. Dozens of lab safety "fail" stories teach unforgettable lessons about how to practice safety in everyday life. Finally, we’ll discuss how to ​convince ​others ​to ​care ​more ​about ​health, ​safety ​and ​the ​environment in the real world of budgets and time constraints.
