Date: August 30, 1999

From:     Dr. Katrina Doolittle, Director, Safety Office
Re:         Safety Training Fall Schedule

The Safety Office now provides employees with centralized safety training for
    Hazard Communication - for those exposed to dangerous, toxic or hazardous
                                             materials
    Unexploded Ordnance - for those entering White Sands Missile Range
    Bloodborne Pathogens - for those who may contact human blood or body
                                             secretions contaminated with blood or other
                                             potentially infectious materials
     Respiratory Protection - for those who need to wear a respirator of any kind

Some aspects of laboratory safety will be covered in the Hazard Communication training until we develop training specific to the Laboratory Standard.  There are no charges for training.  Seating is limited, so we ask that you register by calling 646-3327.  Classes are conducted in Academic Research Building C, room 109 unless otherwise notified.  Special sessions may also be scheduled for larger groups at other Department locations by contacting Katrina Doolittle.
