Blue Eyes Red Dragon ,

Awesome mate!

Short, and brief yet detailed podcasts from experts who are safety professionals or occupational hygienists. As a hygienist i’ve come back many times to remind myself of some of the information related to the field, either because i got rust or i’m not practicing that at the moment.

Thank you and 3M for this wonderful experience!
