Join us for a Science Lab Safety Train-the-Trainer workshop!  Wondering if your science lab safety programs are outdated? Which safety regulations apply to your school? Are your chemicals labeled and stored properly? Do you have Safety Data Sheets for your hazardous chemicals? Are proper protocols in place to protect your employees and students? If you answered “no” to any of these questions, we can provide you with the knowledge base, the resources, and a variety of tools to support you as you train other teachers in your school or system! OSHA regulations that affect schools (HazCom Standard CFR 1910.1200, Lab Standard CFR 1910.1450, and many others) will be discussed. Also, recommendations from other professional agencies on how to address these regulations will be provided. Come prepared to create or improve upon your school science lab safety or Chemical Hygiene Plan. Receive free resources and information so that YOU can train other teachers in your school or science department.

Presenter: Gina Barrier, Lead Safety Instructor, has 30+ years of experience training both industrial and school employees in science lab safety. She has worked as an industrial chemist and safety manager. She has also taught AP Chemistry and served as a Chemical Hygiene Officer.
