Safety Chair Meeting on March 20 to include new safety fair

Purdue's Radiological and Environmental Management (REM) department will hold its annual Safety Chair Meeting from 8 to 11 a.m. Wednesday (March 20) in Stewart Center, Room 214.

The program agenda can be found at www.purdue.edu/rem/2013ascma.pdf.

Departmental safety representatives and building deputies are invited to attend to hear presentations on environmental health and safety issues and compliance updates. Faculty and staff are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions.

In addition to the scheduled topics for discussion, there will be a safety fair set up from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. in Stewart Center, Room 218, with a variety of vendor displays and information to answer questions about safety needs.

The Safety Chair Meeting will be split into three sessions. The first session at 8 a.m. features an occupational safety theme targeting a non-academic audience. The second session, 9-10 a.m., will apply to all audiences and will include a 30-minute break at 9:30 a.m. for an opportunity to visit vendors and to discuss safety concerns with REM staff in STEW 218. The third and final session, 10-11 a.m., will have a laboratory theme targeting an academic research audience.
