Live webinar to discuss ‘Substitution of Hazardous Substances’

Nov 01 2022

A live webinar, hosted by a leading safety expert from Merck to ensure your lab’s safety will take place on Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 at 10 am, CET.

Hazardous substances are often parts of chemical workflows, owing to their functional properties. To minimise exposure risks and to ensure lab safety, they are substituted with safer alternatives. It is important to identify hazardous substances first and explore for other options when an effective, safer alternative is not available. 

Register for the webinar here if in North America or here if from outside of North America and learn about:  
• Risk control measures - from the most reliable and effective level of protection to the least
• Advantages and limitations of substitution 
• Using tools like GHS column model and vapor hazard ratio
• The term, ‘Regrettable Substitution’
