EHS, in partnership with the Office of Research and Economic Development, sponsors a spring and fall Safety Colloquium.
Spring 2017 Safety Colloquium
Chemical Hazard Assessment and Risk
Minimization, presented by Daniel Olsen,
How do you ensure that your work with chemicals will not result in harm to yourself, others, or result in a fire or other property damage? Learning how to anticipate chemical hazards, and hazards associated with the operation (e.g., unexpected reactions, heat or gas generation, pressurization, etc.) and planning actions to reduce the risk is the topic of this colloquium.
Anyone who works with hazardous chemicals should attend. This colloquium will demystify the chemical hazard assessment and risk minimization process. Faculty, staff, and students who work with hazardous chemicals, particularly those that conduct chemical reactions or work with varied and numerous different chemicals will find this colloquium informative and are invited to attend.
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., East Campus Union, (check kiosk)
3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m., Hamilton Hall, Room 112
RSVPs are not necessary for this colloquium. Review the publicity poster and select the time/location that best fits your schedule.
For further information or to suggest future colloquium topics contact Elizabeth (Betsy) Howe at email@example.com or (402) 472-5488.
