The course leader is Dr. Henry Nowicki. He is very active in presenting and developing short courses related to the OSHA lab standard, health and safety. The purpose of this one-day course is to provide information to aid development and implementation of a program to comply with the new-OSHA laboratory standard for occupational exposure to toxic substances in laboratories. See below for the course outline.
The course is designed to aid in the completion of a Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) which complies with OSHA guidelines. If you cannot attend the course, we recommend purchase of the course manual "OSHA Laboratory Standard". Additionally, PACS has a manual "Passing Your OSHA Laboratory Standard", which provides guidelines for how to deal with the OSHA inspector when they knock on your door.
This is an important course for personnel with responsibilities including the protection of laboratory workers from overexposure to toxic substances. These procedures are mandated by OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.1450. Compliance is necessary to reduce liabilities and bad publicity. The course will, as far as possible, be tailored to the interests of attendees. Other PACS courses useful for personnel responsible for developing and implementing the lab CHP are "Toxicology Basic Principles" and "Basics of Industrial Hygiene".
