Webinar – Navigating TSCA: Understanding Risk Mgmt & EPA Regulatory Measures for Chemical Safety

In recent years, the EPA has conducted risk evaluations for several chemicals under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to assess whether they pose unreasonable risks to human health or the environment. For those chemicals deemed to represent an unreasonable risk in any exposure scenario, the EPA is required to develop and propose risk management actions to mitigate the risks. These actions can range from labeling restrictions to restricting the use of the chemicals in certain scenarios to potentially banning the chemical in the US. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight current activities by the EPA regarding the risk management decision making process and the potential actions that the Agency for chemicals deemed to represent an unreasonable risk.

Webinar – Conducting Legionella Remediation in Buildings

Much emphasis is given to the assessment of Legionella in buildings but industrial hygienists are often at a loss when it comes to implementing a Legionella remediation plan. The presentation covers the principles of remediation taking various technical sources as models. Including ACGIH, USCDC, ASHRAE 188, and Colloing Tower Institute. Ample examples of remediation, including overseas outbreaks, are provided to illustrate the role of the IH in the process.

Webinar – Psychological and Physiological Impact of Heat Stress and Heat-Related Illness on Athletes, Coaches, and Sport Officials

Athletes, coaches and officials are exposed to exertional heat stress which result in heat-related illness in both indoor and outdoor sports during practice and competition. Heat stress can impact the cognitive, behavioral, and memory of these cohorts both in the shot-term under extreme conditions and during multiple events over a short period of time such as a long weekend. This is true for weekend competitions and preseason workouts without controls.
