Course Description
The function of many of today's chemical laboratories is not always easily described. To those in the laboratory it may seem to be at the core of all operations, since the information it provides affect major decisions that can determine the very existence of the organization it serves. To others, it is merely a convenient way to obtain data on which to base their actions so that they can spend most of their time pursuing more productive activities. In fact, elements of truth are to be found in both concepts. However, everybody agree about the importance of chemical laboratory for each process plant.

This course will cover the major operations performed in an industrial chemical laboratory. It will describe the major equipment used in the chemical laboratory, their operations, validations, calibration and maintenance. The course will concentrate on Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) which includes development, revisions, standards and implementations. Various Quality standards will be discussed. However, the course will concentrate on ISO 17025:2005. Finally, the course will demonstrate the safety practices and its critical impact in an industrial chemical laboratory. OSHA standards and regulations will be discussed and related videos will be shown to course participants.

In addition to the updated knowledge provided to course participants during the course period, each participant will go back to his/her laboratory equipped with an outstanding manual that includes typical SOPs that can be modified and used within participant's laboratory. Further, participants will be given 12 video tapes, compressed in one CD that can be used by the participant in training colleagues and subordinate on laboratory safety.

This outstanding course is a must for every laboratory professional. The updated knowledge and techniques covered during the 5 days of this course, will dramatically improve not only the participant's skills, but will also improve the performance of the participant's laboratory as a whole. However, if you are looking to improve the performance of your laboratory, then you have to commit yourself to pass the knowledge gained in this course to your subordinates and colleagues back in your laboratory as Haward Technology will give you all the tools needed for this purpose; knowledge, skills, manual, power point slides, videos, Standard Operation Procedures (SOP), forms, and standards.
