  2013 Advanced Academy for Lab Safety Excellence

Would you like the opportunity to take your laboratory safety program from good to great to awesome? The 2013 Advanced Academy for Lab Safety Excellence will help you discover the secrets to lab safety that have taken others years to acquire. This Advanced Academy will:

  • Help you navigate the complex regulations that impact your world of laboratory safety
  • Provide a network of colleagues to help you solve your most challenging safety issues
  • Give you the confidence to be successful in your role as a laboratory safety officer

Over 400 of your colleagues participated in the 2012 class! Here is what one of the participants had to say:

"I learned so much from the Academy that would have taken me weeks on my own to try to find on the Internet. I am using this information to create a better training seminar for the whole laboratory. The input from other Academy participants on how they handled situations was really great."

LaDonna Stanoshek, Laboratory Safety Officer, Faith Regional Health Services, Norfolk, NE

The 2013 Academy is a perfect way to advance your safety knowledge if you:

  • Find it frustrating to locate safety information from a variety of sources
  • Want to expand the impact of your lab safety expertise
  • Want to increase your effectiveness in educating staff on lab safety issues
  • Need ready access to colleagues whose expertise in lab safety is well known
  • Would like to network with your peers on a regular basis for lab safety ideas
  • Have a limited budget for safety education

The 2013 Academy is an advanced course and will cover material not previously presented.  This year we will have drawings and special surprises for participants during class.  Sign up now so you do not miss out on the fun!

What to expect:  Six 90-minute webinars over a 12 month period with other members of the Acadmey to brainstorm safety issues and cover a particular safety topic.
