Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 2-3 pm ET 

Chemical Warning Labels

What is the best way to improve safety culture in your laboratory? We have gathered a panel of chemical and laboratory safety experts to tackle the most challenging safety issues and questions posed in previous webinars. Join Dr. Joseph Pickel, CCHO, Research Support Group Leader at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Debbie Decker, CCHO, the Safety Manager in the Chemistry Department at UC Davis and Ralph Stuart, CIH, CCHO, the Chemical Hygiene Officer at Keene State College during this free interactive broadcast as they discuss the technical and cultural safety issues that are relevant to small, medium, and large labs alike as well as take your questions live.
