- Free Safety Workshop at U of M

August 8 - 9, 2023

Join the Joint Safety Team (JST) of the University of Minnesota (UMN) at our safety workshop for high school teachers! The workshop will be held on August 8-9, 2023 at Smith Hall on the UMN Twin Cities campus. We have prepared a free event to help chemistry teachers identify and manage potential safety issues that have not been assessed before, as well as develop a different perception of safety. Participants will be introduced to the concept of safety culture and learn how to improve safety culture in their workplace. A series of instructions about waste handling, storage and disposal, safer lecture demonstrations, and other topics will allow the participants to have more confidence in taking proactive control while teaching their students the appreciation for proper safety conduct. Participants will earn continuing education credit hours through the UMN.
Register for free by July 21st, 2023 at

The course will also offer professional development credits through the Colorado School of Mines. For participants who wish to be awarded those, a registration payment of $65 is required after the workshop.  
Please see our flyer and let us know if you have any questions.
