Tuesday, November 6 2012

Location: MassBio, 300 Technology Square, 8th Floor, Cambridge, MA
You’re walking down the beach and you stub your toe. When you bend over to see what it was, you find a brass lantern. As you rub it, a genie comes out and offers you (the EH&S Manager) three wishes.
Your first wish is … “I wish our senior management cared more about EHS.”
Your second … “I wish our senior management was more involved in the EH&S program.”
Your third … “I wish our organization would spend more on its EH&S program.”
If you would like to have these wishes granted, don’t miss the presentation by Dr. James Kaufman, President and CEO of the Laboratory Safety Institute. Jim is going to present some of the ideas that he’s shared with company and university senior managers and EH&S directors on leadership in safety and how to convince others that EH&S is important.
For over 30 years, Dr. Kaufman has made thinking about health and safety an energizing and enjoyable experience. Dr. Kaufman is a former, ten-year member of the American Chemical Society's (ACS) Council Committee on Chemical Safety and is past-chairman of the 2,500-member ACS Division of Chemical Health and Safety. Most recently, Dr. Kaufman was appointed chair of the Safety In Science Education Committee of the International Council of Associations for Science Education.
Don't miss this special opportunity and feel free to invite senior management to attend and provide their perspective.
