The courses will be held at the Sheraton Pittsburgh at Station Square (300 West Station Square) Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday, July 27 (CHO) and July 28 (SITL), 2019 from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM immediately preceding the Annual Conference of the National Association of Scientific Materials Managers (NAOSMM).

How to Be a More Effective Chemical Hygiene Officer: Whether you are a new Chemical Hygiene Officer or an “old” one, you will find something to put to real use in this fast-paced presentation. This one-day course was developed by RJG Associates as the prep course for the NRCC Chemical Hygiene Officer Certification Exam. It covers the lab standard, other lab regulations, the role of the CHO, getting others involved, developing your chemical hygiene plan, lab hazards, and resources.

The one-day “Safety in the Laboratory” course discusses the fundamentals of lab safety and how to create a more effective lab safety program. Lab managers, lab technicians, and lab workers will benefit from this intensive and entertaining course. The topics covered are listed on the linked registration pages. These lab safety courses will provide you with the information needed to make your laboratory a safer place to work. You will take home the knowledge to develop or improve your lab safety program and comply with the OSHA Lab Standard.

For both courses, a PDF course notebook (about 200 pages) is included with tuition. A printed notebook is also available for purchase during registration.

Dr. James Kaufman is the founder and President Emeritus of The Laboratory Safety Institute. He has been called the nation's foremost authority on safety instruction in academia.
