The Best Chemical Hygiene Officer:
Strategies for Success

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST


What does it take to become the best Chemical Hygiene Officer (CHO)? OSHA requires over 40,000 laboratories in the United States to have a CHO, but they provide little guidance in what it takes to be good at the job.

The Laboratory Safety Institute teaches about the OSHA Lab Standard, has counseled and trained hundreds of Chemical Hygiene Officers, and reviewed and written countless Chemical Hygiene Plans (CHPs).

Dr. James A. Kaufman, LSI Founder and President/CEO, will share with you years of experience and insight into what it takes to hire, support, and be "The Best Chemical Hygiene Officer."

Webinar participants will learn:

•         Background on the OSHA Lab Standard and the CHO role
•         Responsibilities of the Best CHO
•         Hiring and training the Best CHO
•         Supporting and protecting the Best CHO
•         What's in the Best CHO's CHP
•         How to get the resources for your CHO and CHP
