*The popular BCIA Safety Brochures are available free for the cost of shipping, and can be used by educators, retailers, manufacturers or anyone who finds the information of use (they are popular at consumer shows, at conferences, in public health settings, to name only a few ways these brochures are used!) These brochures are free thanks to the generous sponsorship of rotating industry members, and there is room on the back of the brochure to personalize them with your own contact information. They ship from international locations (US, Canada, Australia, UK) to keep shipping costs reasonable. English language brochures are available in print, and Spanish and French translations are available to download.
