The EEA e-newsletter is back!

Summer’s about finished and we’re gearing up for a busy fall & winter here. We’re all ready with a full schedule of asbestos, lead, mold, safety and hazardous materials initial and refresher courses, along with some new and exciting programs to enhance your environmental intelligence.

Here’s what’s happening at EEA:

We’re rolling out a new course “Healthy Homes Practitioner”, a two day program designed by theNational Center for Healthy Homes (NCHH), and sponsored by the New York State Health Department and Cornell University. This is a great course for environmental, health and housing professionals improving their capabilities to address a range of environmental and physical hazards in housing and other high occupancy settings. Dates are forthcoming, but expect a session in Buffalo in October and Brooklyn in December.

We’re also pleased to announce a new “Bag Breakfast” series for construction and design professionals. We’ll be offering weekly get-togethers in our offices for updates on selected topics. It’s a great way for those looking for more information on asbestos, lead, mold or hazardous materials without the cost and time associated with certification. As a bonus, these programs will carry Continuing Education Units (CEUs) under select agencies or professional organizations. More on that later.

We’re all moved in in our new Rochester office, located in beautiful and historic High Falls. Best to check it out before the demolition starts… By the way, Be sure to stop at Greentopia if you’re in the area 10 -16, 2012 September. This festival is becoming Rochester’s finest.

Bad news on Syracuse, though. Our relationship at the South Side Innovation Center (SSIC) has ended and we’re now in the process of identifying a new location. If you have any suggestions or ideas on where we can go (other than hell), let us know. We’re pretty flexible!

We’ll close with a big congratulations to Mark Gonzalez, who has just completed the OSHA 500 and 510 courses. He’ll now be able to present the OSHA 10 and 30 hour construction safetycourses in English and Spanish.

Here’s a couple courses that you don’t want to miss:

Mold Assessment Technician, Buffalo, Sept 4-6
Asbestos Supervisor Recertification, Rochester, Sept 4 and Buffalo, Sept 11 and Brooklyn, Sept 25 (in DUMBO!)
Lead Supervisor Refresher, Rochester, Sept 5
Lead Renovator Certification, Rochester, Sept 11
OSHA 10 Hr Construction Safety, Buffalo, Sept 12

Estar bien!
