ENVR & PHYS Poster Sessions 6:00 to 8:00 PM, San Diego Convention Center, Hall D GEOC Poster Session 8:00 to 10:00 PM, San Diego Convention Center, Hall D Joint MEDI & ORGN Poster Session 7:00 to 10:00 PM, San Diego Convention Center, Hall F WORKSHOPS THE ACS DIVISION OF CHEMICAL HEALTH & SAFETY (CHAS) WORK- SHOPS are scheduled for the Friday and/or Saturday prior to a national meeting. Workshops begin at 8:30 AM and finish around 4:00 PM, with a 1 hour (no host) lunch break. Coffee is available starting at 8:00 AM. Register online at Laboratory Waste Management. Fri- day, March 11, 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. San Diego Convention Center, 31B. CHAS offers this workshop to assist participants with the various regulatory requirements that apply to laboratories that generate hazardous waste, as well as provide insight into the options for on-site management and off site dis- posal. Focus will include recycling and reclamation techniques, economical handling of waste, and liability issues. Laboratory Safety. Friday, March 11, 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. San Diego Con- vention Center, 31A. The Laboratory Safety Institute and CHAS present an intensive one-day introduction to effective lab safety programs and the fundamentals of lab safety. Through a combination of discussion, video, activi- ties, and instructor presentations, the participants learn ways to identify haz- ards and convince others that lab safety is important. They learn about the criti- cal components in a lab safety program and techniques for program evaluation. How To Be A More Effective Chemi- cal Hygiene Officer (CHO). Saturday, March 12, 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. San Diego Convention Center, 31C. CHAS offers this workshop to provide partici- pants with a detailed analysis of the CHO position and to prepare for the CHO certification exam to be held the next day. Participants receive a clear perspective on safety issues in the lab- oratory, focusing on what a CHO does and how to do it better. The workshop covers all of the content areas of the certification exam, including a sample test in the same format as the real one. Whether you are a new CHO or an expe- rienced one, you will find something to put to real use in this fast-paced pre- sentation. Reactive Chemical Management for Laboratories & Pilot Plants. Satur- day, March 12, 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. San Diego Convention Center, 31B. Chemical reactivity hazards contribute to a significant number of incidents in laboratories and pilot plants. This workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and skill to screen pro- cesses for potential hazards, recognize when reactive hazards are present, and implement appropriate controls to reduce the risk of an incident. Workshop attendees will review case studies of actual incidents and work examples to understand the screening and recognition process. Group discus- sions of control methods will allow participants to share their experiences and to evaluate methods for controlling reactivity risks. Cannabis Extraction & Analysis. Sat- urday, March 12, 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. San Diego Convention Center, 32A. CHAS and CANN (Cannabis Chemistry Subdivision) present a comprehensive review of current methodologies and best practices in the analysis of canna- bis products and extraction/processing of cannabis. Participants will learn the latest developments in extraction tech- nologies, how to comply with testing standards, and how to operate safely. Meeting New Chemical Safety Expec- tations in Instructional Laborato- ries. Saturday, March 12, 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. San Diego Convention Center, 31A. The 21st-century chem- istry laboratory curriculum includes discovery-based, research-style lab work in addition to traditional "cookbook" procedures. To ensure a safe working environment in this emerging pedagogy, laboratory safety practices must evolve away from a strict focus on safety rules toward risk-assessment and risk- management practices. This transition is outlined in ACS's guidelines for bach- elor's degree programs and in the new National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 45-2015 safety standards. This workshop will flesh out these ideas in the cultural context of lab safety and then review and provide practice with Job Hazard Analysis and Control Band- ing tools, as described in ACS's Identify- ing & Evaluating Hazards in Research Laboratories document. Finally, we will address how these tools can be used to address the new NFPA requirements for a documented hazard/risk assess- ment and a safety briefing to students in instructional laboratories. COACh: Leadership & Advanced Nego- tiations Skills. Saturday, March 12, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, Marina A. This aca- demic leadership seminar is designed for university faculty or other academic administrators who are anticipating, considering, or fulfilling academic leadership roles. The advanced nego- tiations section builds on the basics of negotiations and adds a leadership assessment, as well as advanced skills in negotiating difficult conversations. Participants will also learn how to differ- entiate types of leadership approaches to change, identify the stages of resis- tance to change, and learn how to use their network in leading change. The group will be given a model for how to form a high-performance task force to deal with challenging issues, as well as processes for giving feedback. Partici- pants will practice a number of skills to strengthen understanding of the techniques above. As a final exercise, volunteer participants will practice a case study. Standard Methods, Materials & Databases for Surface Complexation Measurements. Wednesday, March 16, 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM, Omni San Diego Hotel, Grand Ballroom D. When com- bined with chemical equilibrium model- ing, the measurement of complexation reactions between material surfaces and target chemical species can result in the calculation of discrete reactive surface site concentrations and intrinsic thermodynamic equilibrium constants. These parameters are critical when modeling and predicting chemical processes associated with industrial separations, water treatment and reme- diation, and the reactive transport of contaminants in natural geochemical systems.
