thank youCHEMICAL SAFETY IN SCHOOLS – RISK ASSESS SEMINAR, held Friday 1st July
A HUGE “Thank You” to Phillip and Eva Crisp from Risk Assess, who recently ran a half day chemical safety training in Brisbane, for Qld Laboratory Technicians.

Attendees found it to be interesting and very informative, even the experience lab technicians learnt something new.  Thankyou also to our wonderful hosts at Brisbane Grammar School – the lovely Sally Elliot and Niki Duncan, who made sure our survival needs were met through provision of a quality morning tea, beverages and climate control.  As usual, a great venue to hold professional development.
