Specifically, the speaker will cover the following:
    * Overview of RCA Methods
    * Tips to make RCA more effective
    * Interviewing Dos and Don'ts
    * Effective Communication of Results

    AGENDA

    The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) commissioned a Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) whose primary objective was to conduct an independent, objective analysis of whether potential semiconductor "clean room" chemical exposures are likely to elevate cancer risk. The SIA outlined various follow-up actions known collectively as the “Worker Health Project” which included the identification of Primary Prevention Initiative (PPI) Tasks.  One of the PPI projects identified as a priority was the need to study certain manufacturing process areas. Dr. Filipp’s  presentation will focus on a review of the SIA Worker Health Initiative (WHI) Primary Prevention Initiative (PPI) project conducted by Environmental & Occupational Risk Management (EORM) and important findings and conclusions as they pertain to further minimize potential exposures during equipment maintenance. Dr. Nick Filipp was the Principal Investigator of the project. He has 9 years experience as an EHS consultant and over 10 years of experience in the semiconductor industry. His professional experience also includes process research and development. Nick is a Certified Industrial Hygienist and received his PhD in Chemistry from Northeastern University.

     June 5, 2003 Meeting

    TOPIC:          COMPREHENSIVE CRISIS MANAGEMENT - FROM EMERGENCY RESPONSE TO RECOVERY



    SPEAKER:        Xochitl Monteon, Principal Consultant, EORM
    TIME:           11:45 am to 1:00 pm
    LOCATION:       UC Santa Cruz Extension

            Moffett Business Park
            1180 Bordeaux Drive
            .

                    Sunnyvale

    Driving Directions at www.ucsc-extension.edu/main/info/sunmap.html <http://www.ucsc-extension.edu/main/info/sunmap.html>

    AGENDA

    Although it is impossible to prevent all crises, organizations that are prepared recover two to three times faster than those that are not.  Being prepared to respond and recovery quickly from such crises is not only cost effective, but also constitutes a competitive advantage. As such, it is imperative that organizations develop and implement a Comprehensive Crisis Management Program.  These programs not only address the minutes to hours response (Emergency Response), but also address the 'human elements' by focusing on human resources related issues (EAP, Benefits, Employee Communications, etc.).  So come and learn how you can further build-upon your existing structure.  Learn how companies have dealt with 9/11, Supply Management Issues, Brand Management, Terrorism, and SARS.

    Mrs. Monteon has over 10 years of Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) experience in the education, government, semiconductor, hospital and manufacturing industry sectors. In addition, she has over 6 years experience developing comprehensive emergency response, crisis management and business continuity programs for multinational organizations. Mrs. Monteon received a BS in Environmental Studies from San Jose State University and is a Certified Business Continuity Planner, Certified American Red Cross Instructor, and Certified in Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.

    RESERVATIONS

    Please bring $8.00 to cover the costs of the meeting.  Please contact LaWanda Rushing-Franklin to confirm your attendance at 925-337-0099 or email sfrank5032@aol.com <mailto:sfrank5032@aol.com>  (preferred) no later than June 4, 2003. Also, if you for some reason can not make the meeting, please contact LaWanda as soon as possible.

    February 1st, 2001, Meeting

    TOPIC: RECENT CHANGES TO THE BAAQMD RULES

    TIME: 11:45 am to 1:00 pm

    LOCATION: UC Santa Cruz Extension
    3120 De La Cruz Blvd.
    Santa Clara


    AGENDA

    Join us as we begin the new millennium with Ms. Carol Lee, Sr. Air Quality Engineer, Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD). In the past, the semiconductor industry permitted specific equipment within each Fab area. In addition, permit exemptions and fees were based on the type of equipment within the source and did not take into account solvent throughput or emissions. As a result of a Rule change, effective 3/1/2000, the BAAQMD adopted a new permitting structure and procedures for evaluating semiconductor Fab area sources. The change involves permitting specific equipment to that of permitting the solvent usage and/or emissions. Carol Lee has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and an MBA from San Francisco Sate. She is also a registered Professional Engineer. Learn more about these Rule changes and how this will help to reduce the quantity of permit applications by joining us on the 1st !

    RESERVATIONS

    Please bring $7.00 to cover the costs of the meeting. Please contact Bob Khalipa to confirm your attendance at (408) 251-2601 or email khalipa@aol.com (preferred) no later than Wednesday, January 31, 2001.

    August 5th Meeting

     

    TOPIC: TOOL SPECIFIC LOCK-OUT/TAG-OUT (LOTO)
    PROCEDURES

    TIME: 11:45 am to 1:00 pm
    LOCATION: UC Santa Cruz Extension
    3120 De La Cruz Blvd.
    Santa Clara

     

    AGENDA

    Most of us have a lock-out/tag-out (LOTO) program at our companies. However, rather than having and resorting to standard LOTO procedures, it would be much better if we have and use tool specific procedures. Join us at the August SESHA meeting to learn and see demonstrations on tool specific LOTO procedures. In addition, the presentation will cover shift change LOTO, group LOTO and LOTO devices. We are very fortunate to have Mr. Jay Jamali, CHMM, CSP, EHS Director for Enviro Safetech and Mr. Dave Keenan, CHMM, EHS Manager. Jay also is Regional Director for the SESHA. Jay and Dave are experienced EHS professionals.
    They have developed lock-out/tag-out programs and tool specific lock-out/tag-out procedures for high tech tools for over 15 years.
