Fall 2012 Lab Refresher Safety Class
NMSU Environmental Health and Safety is providing the Annual Refresher classes for Lab Safety in September and October.
This class will only count as annual lab safety refresher training for individuals that have completed the regular Laboratory Standard and/or Hazardous Waste Management classes (See safety class descriptions at http://www.nmsu.edu/~safety/training/class_desc_outline.htm#Class%20List)
EH&S will present the 60-min. lab refresher classes on the following dates:
- September 06, Thursday, at 4 pm in Foster Hall room 231, as a Biology Seminar;
- September 07, Friday, at 1:30 pm in Jett Hall, as a Chemical Engineering Seminar;
- September 28, Friday, at 3:30 pm in Gerald Thomas Auditorium (rm194), as a PES seminar for all ACES (College of Agriculture) departments;
- October 4, Thursday, at 12 pm in the Chemistry Building auditorium CB153, as a Chemistry seminar
Researchers, faculty, GAs, & employees in other NMSU science or engineering lab groups, e.g. physics, geology, civil & mechanical engineering, engineering technology, DACC labs, etc, are welcome to attend any one of the above. Pre-registration via safety.nmsu.edu is requested to document the class and minimize crowding.
Note: Again, be advised that this class is not the initial Laboratory Standard Safety Class required for university lab users (researchers, faculty, GAs, TA, post-docs, and undergrad employees), nor does it cover the initial Employee & Hazcom Safety requirements for chemical users. This 60-90 minute class is sufficient for the OSHA-required annual review under the Lab Standard regulations.
Also those individuals that have attended Lab Standard Class in 2012 do not need to attend the lab safety refreshers until 2013.
Additional details on class description and online registration are provided at EH&S website at safety.nmsu.edu. For other questions, please email or call David Shearer, Asst. Director, EH&S 646-3327.
