The ACS Division of Chemical Health and Safety Workshop “RAMP in the Research Lab” again on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, from 2 PM to 5 PM EDT via Zoom.
This 3-hour workshop is for frontline researchers in academic institutions: graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and undergraduate students. It will introduce the principles of the RAMP paradigm (recognize hazards, assess risk, minimize risk, and prepare for emergencies), through a series of case studies and discussion sessions focused on practicing each of the RAMP steps. By the end, attendees will have learned and practiced how to systematically do a risk assessment of both existing protocols as well as for past incidents.
The workshop is $25 per attendee and participants will receive a certificate of participation to add to their resume or portfolio upon completion of the workshop.
