Webinar – Controversies on the Benefits of Sitting, Standing, or Hybrid Workplaces

The webinar is in 2 parts. The first will focus on the musculoskeletal benefits and problems associated with common office work postures such as sitting, standing, or the hybrid perched posture. Seating pros and cons (support, biomechanics, discomfort/pain ) and standing pros and cons (movement, force, biomechanics, discomfort/pain, LBP) on muscle fatigue and edema, varicose vein will be discussed. In addition, possible Interventions (mobility, rest, exercises, antifatigue mats) and some myths will be discussed.

Webinar – ACGIH Velocity Pressure Calculation Method – Making It Easy!

This webinar introduces the use of the ACGIH Velocity Pressure Method for calculating both dynamic and frictional losses in an industrial ventilation system. Using Bernoulli’s Principle for mutual conversion of velocity and static pressures, this method assigns loss factors for hoods, fittings and ductings which allow the static pressure loss to be determined by the appropriate loss factor and the velocity pressure. This allows versatility and ease when computing losses for changes in system airflow or design. The ACGIH Velocity Pressure Method for calculating frictional and dynamic static pressure losses in an industrial ventilation system is a consistent, accurate and easy to use method for both system design and evaluation.

Webinar – Worker Exposure Modeling: ECETOC-TRA Model and Advanced REACH Tool (ART)

Exposure modelling plays an important role in both the European strategy for chemical risk assessment (EN-689) and the REACH regulation.

The most commonly used model for estimating occupational exposure to hazardous substances in Europe is the ECETOC-TRA model.

Webinar – Exposure Assessment Modeling – A Practical Approach

This webinar will be a presentation for Industrial hygienists who may have heard of exposure modeling but are worried that their last math and chemistry courses were long enough ago that modeling is out of their reach. It will inform Industrial hygienists whose day-to-day tasks keep them from practicing the mathematics that seem front-and-center in exposure modeling and it will help Industrial hygienists who know that they have the skills needed to use models for exposure assessment, but don’t know how to get started. This webinar is intended to be an easy “on ramp” into the world of modeling using basic scenarios and models, it and will point the way forward to more in-depth model use.

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.
