Webinar – Key to Hiring a Safety Trainer and Industrial Hygienist

The webinar will discuss key issues in selecting and engaging an industrial hygiene consultant. We will discuss what not to expect from an industrial hygiene consultant. What to do after the agreement for services is signed. Also how to evaluate possible pitfalls and risk management when contracting an industrial hygiene consultant. Industrial Hygiene consultants are no substitute for effective management and governance and should not be brought on board to deal with matters that are the responsibility of leaders.

Webinar – Wearable Sensing Devices for Worker Safety and Health Management

Interest in the use of wearable sensing devices for occupational safety and health management has been on the rise in recent times. However, information on the utility of this technology category within occupational settings is still scarce. This webinar will identify different emerging wearable sensors used for managing worker safety and health, present case studies of applications, describe benefits associated with the application of these technologies, and discuss factors impacting the effective adoption and use of these wearable sensors in workplaces.

Virtual Lecture – ACGIH Morey Award Lecture for Bioaerosols Excellence

J. David Miller, PhD, the recipient of the 2021 Philip R. Morey Memorial Award, has made a significant contribution in the science of occupational and environmental bioaerosols and biological agents. Dr. Miller’s lecture is titled “How Evidence Has Changed the Guidance of Mold and Dampness Since 1988”.

Webinar – An Overview of U.S. Regulations Governing Hazards

Federal and state regulations that govern the management of certain substances can be confusing at best, or overlooked at worst. This presentation seeks to improve clarity and understanding on the part of professionals as to jurisdiction and broad requirements that apply to substances under the various regulatory banners in the U.S.

Webinar – How the Adoption of Revision 7 Impact Your SDSs and Labels

How the Adoption of Revision 7 of the GHS of Classification of Labelling of Chemicals in Canada and the US Impact Your SDSs and Labels – The adoption (planned to take place Fall 2021) will impact the content of multiple sections of the Safety Data Sheet and the precautionary statements found on GHS labels for a variety of chemical products. Non-flammable aerosols will now have to be classified, so having an SDS and a GHS label, as well several physical and human health hazard chemicals will now be classified in NEW hazard categories. The presentation will expose these changes and emphasize on the detailed implementation of Health Canada and OSHA, to raise stringent differences that will impact SDSs and labels.

Webinar – Epidemiology-Based Analysis of Musculoskeletal Injuries: A Forensic Approach

In this 90-minute presentation we will discuss the scope of ergonomics and review traditional definitions of ergonomic risk factors and some of the misconceptions around the development of musculoskeletal disorders. After discussing traditional definitions of ergonomic risk factors, a more current and epidemiology-based approach to defining ergonomic risk factors and the development of musculoskeletal injuries will be presented. Epidemiological research, American Medical Association (AMA) Guidelines as well as ISO, ANSI and EU Standards will be discussed and referenced. Ergonomic risks and the development of musculoskeletal injury will be discussed in the context of a variety of manufacturing environments as well and traditional office and home office settings. The epidemiology and evidence-based approach will then be applied to forensic analysis and accepting and/or denying potential claims. The presentation will conclude with a question and discussion session with all participants.

Webinar – Respirator Fit Testing: Common Errors and Solutions

OSHA requires respirator fit testing for employees who are required to wear tight fitting respirators. Unfortunately, the fitting characteristics of filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs) are poorly understood. In addition, while OSHA accepted fit testing protocols are well defined, they are frequently administered incorrectly. As a result, poorly fitting respirators can pass the fit test.  This is particularly true when qualitative respirator fit testing is administered for FFRs. This not only has consequences for the respirator wearer, who assumes the test has been administered correctly, but puts the employer at risk. This presentation will review the most common qualitative fit testing errors and provide solutions to prevent them from recurring.

Webinar – Risk Assessing Facility Pandemic Resilience

The industrial hygiene profession is uniquely equipped to address the current pandemic and future pandemics. We have the tools and skills to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, control, and prevent hazards and biohazards. As part of our toolkit in addressing hazards, we risk assess. This presentation will provide a proven example of a risk assessment tool and process that has guided a very large number of facility owners in the US toward pandemically resilient buildings based on the factors for severity and likelihood of biohazard incidence.

Webinar – OHS Interventions and Research Tailored to Vulnerable AFF Workers

Agriculture, forestry, and fishing (AFF) represent some of the most dangerous modern industries. Occupational hazards can be exacerbated when the workforce is comprised of relatively high proportions of vulnerable worker populations. This webinar will explore some of the unique safety and health challenges amongst youth, migrant, English as a Second Language, low socioeconomic status and temporary workers face in the AFF industries. We will then discuss a selection of effective research interventions specifically targeting these groups from 2000-2014 and their application more broadly. These 35 interventions focused entirely on the agriculture industry. The types of interventions evaluated, vulnerable populations targeted, and evaluation methods will be described. Finally, we will describe practical approaches for current safety and health professionals to develop, implement and evaluate their own interventions.

Webinar – How to Use Haz-Map: A Relational Database of Hazardous Chemicals and Occupational Diseases

The webinar will include this slide show plus a guided tour of the database so that users can more easily find information to assess occupational exposure and disease.
