Laboratory Scale Recognition and Control of Chemical Reactivity Hazards Training

A one-day class specifically designed to provide participants with the tools needed to be able to screen processes for potential reactive chemistry hazards, recognize when reactive chemistry hazards are present and implement appropriate controls to reduce the risk of an incident associated with the hazards. Course instructor Neal Langerman, PhD will examine case studies of real-life incidents to enhance understanding of the screening and recognition process.

Who should take this course?

Chemists, EHS professionals, Industrial Hygienists, Chemical Hygiene Officers, and Lab Supervisors are among those who will benefit from the content presented by Dr. Langerman.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize potential chemical reactivity hazards
  • Put in place controls to prevent chemical reactivity incidents
  • Screen processes for potential chemical reactivity hazards that could cause harm to people, property or the environment
  • Implement a management system to help predict & prevent incidents
  • Recognize when a job safety analysis is needed

Course Logistics

The instructor, Dr. Langerman, has over 30 years’ experience in the field of chemical safety, including holding university faculty and chemical safety consulting posts. He sits on the editorial boards of several major industry publications and is the Owner and Principal Scientist at Advanced Chemical Safety, Inc. (www.chemical-safety.com)
