Merck millipore

Date: 13:00:00 - Nov 19 2020
Speakers: Michael Siebold, PhD
Moderators: Tom Lynch CChem FRSC

Are you tired of always searching for the latest Safety Data Sheet of a reagent? Are you tired of always having doubts about the up-to-dateness of a label? Are you tired of missing your mother tongue on a label? Are you tired of using a “non”-hazardous chemical which shows a high reactivity and does not smell healthy? Are you tired of working with obviously incorrectly classified self-made neat chemicals or mixtures? Are you tired of being flooded with useless information but not getting any helpful advice in dealing with chemicals in your specific use case over the entire lifecycle? Are you tired of keeping up with the latest legal changes in the handling of chemicals? Are you worried because so many people are afraid of chemicals? Are you worried about the political intention striving towards a toxic free environment in the European Union?

During this eLearning session, you will get some forward-looking answers and learn about some more provocative questions.

Let’s redefine the safe use of chemicals, join the way into the modern digital age. 

Key learning objectives:-

  • General rules in the lab
  • Safe handling of chemicals in the lab
  • Behavioural aspects
  • Digitalization of chemicals safety
  • Digital solutions in the lab
