NEW YORK - A comprehensive conference on health and safety concerns will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, November 12, sponsored by the Copper Development Association.

"The Scottsdale conference examines subjects of import to health and safety professionals responsible for all types of work environments."

Lynn Jenkins, chief of the Analysis and Field Evaluations Branch, Division of Safety Research, for the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety, will speak on Violence in the Workplace. David Palmer, president of Emergency Response Planning and Management, will join her and address Emergency Evacuation Planning. Other experts will cover topics on Safety Precautions for Terrorism, Applicant Testing to Determine Safety Attitudes, Point of Operation Guarding, Methods for Drug Testing, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Beryllium Health and Safety.

The conference will be held at the Mountain Shadows Marriott Resort in Scottsdale.
