Description:

This is part two, of a two-part webinar series focusing on the TLVs® for Chemical Substances and the proper application of the values during unusual conditions. It addresses worker conditions including age, gender, and health concerns.

The role of the environmental health and safety professional is to determine how exposures at the workplace affect the health of the employee. However, it is also important to consider how the health of the employee affects workplace exposure assessment. When there is significant variability in employee health conditions it can become a challenging undertaking to properly apply the TLVs®. This webinar focuses on adjustments to the TLVs® due to worker physical conditions and the biological variability of the workforce when accounting for factors such as:

  • Age and Gender
    • Reproductive health effects
      • Pregnancy
      • Nursing mothers
    • Aging workforce
    • Youth workforce
  • Non-occupational Exposures
    • Environmental concerns
      • Pollutants
      • Smoking
    • Moonlighting and recreational exposures
  • Health Related Concerns
    • Medication-dependent workers
    • Chronic health conditions
    • Sensitization
      • Allergies
      • Asthma

After participating in this webinar, attendees will be better able to understand:

  • The purpose of the TLVs® and the variables that should be considered when modification is needed due to an employee's physical condition.
  • The impact age may play when assessing an exposure.
  • The exposure accommodations to consider for reproductive issues.
  • How non-occupational exposures can interact with a workplace exposure.
  • Special considerations of medication-dependent employees.
  • How to work with the employee to ensure proper evaluation factors.
