Applied Chemistry for EHS Professionals
March 10, 2020 @ 8:00 am - March 12, 2020 @ 3:30 pm
Stronger understanding of chemistry allows EHS professionals to better understand nearly all aspects of their work, including analytical results, site characterization, toxicology, monitoring data, regulatory and permit limits, and environmental and human health hazards. After completing the course you will be better prepared to predict and understand fate and transport of chemicals in environmental media, select sampling and monitoring strategies, evaluate laboratory analytical data, diagnose unexpected analytical results, and make more informed EHS decisions.
Applied Chemistry for EHS Professionals™ is valuable for anyone who has corporate or regulatory EHS responsibilities, such as exposure evaluation and controls, environmental permit implementation, monitoring and sampling, waste characterization, pollution prevention, identifying pollutant sources, receiving laboratory analyses, storing hazardous materials, or diagnosing changes in emissions and discharges.
Do you receive environmental technical reports or are asked to sign documents to be submitted to a regulatory agency? Need a place to start learning about why we take certain samples, the techniques involved in sampling, and the analyses of those samples? Need the ability to better evaluate Safety Data Sheets? Do you characterize waste streams or sign manifests and want to feel more confident? Are you responsible for determining if your facility is subject to regulations based on chemicals in your waste streams? Do you have permit reporting responsibilities? Are you involved in site cleanup activities? Do you need to understand what people engaged in those activities are talking about? Puzzled by hazardous materials compatibility? If so, and your academic program did not include chemistry or you simply need a refresher in chemical concepts and processes and how they apply to environmental science, this course should be perfect for you.
