Practical approaches to managing occupational health problems in your animal facility
The development of successful programs of occupational health and safety for those involved in research programs using animals is becoming a priority for many institutions. This conference brings together internationally recognized leaders of the scientific and regulatory communities to identify issues and propose practical ideas for the implementation of successful programs of occupational health for animal users. Speakers include representatives from industry and academic biomedical research institutions, as well as AAALAC.
The conference is of interest primarily to those involved in any aspect of an occupational health and safety program, including Institutional Officials, IACUC members and administrators, Principal Investigators, Occupational Medicine physicians and practitioners, Biosafety Officers, and Attending Veterinarians.
The conference will start with a general overview of the management of a successful program. This overview includes a panel discussion with representatives from each of the different offices involved in the management of an occupational health and safety program. Specific issues related to occupational medicine, biological and non-biological hazards will also be covered.
