WEBINAR - ACGIH® TLV® for Heat Stress and Strain in the Context of Heat Stress Management
Wednesday, March 4, 2015 (2pm - 4:30pm US/Eastern)
While the Heat Stress and Strain TLV® is designed for exposure assessment, it exists in the context of an integrated heat stress management program. This webinar will outline the components of a heat stress management program to illustrate how the TLV® can be used for exposure assessment and the development of controls. Special attention will be given to the three stages of exposure assessment (screening, WBGT-based TLV® and physiological monitoring) and approaches that can be taken at each stage. Because controls are designed to reduce risk, there is a natural interaction between control approaches and exposure assessment. Models to predict WBGT and other environmental parameters will be presented as alternatives to directly measuring WBGT during routine monitoring.
After participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to:
Articulate the rationale for the ACGIH® Heat Stress and Strain decision process
Describe the components of a heat stress management program
Apply the Heat Stress and Strain TLV® exposure limits and control measures
Discuss interactions of exposure limits and control measures
List some methods of WBGT estimation
What is an ACGIH® Webinar?
ACGIH® is dedicated to providing quality, scientific, educational events. One method of doing this is to offer distance-learning webinars. A webinar, short for Web-based seminar, is a presentation, lecture, or seminar that is transmitted over the Internet. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Webinars are as effective as on-site presentations without the travel expense. An ACGIH® webinar is 2½ hours in duration and consists of a live presentation given via the Internet with an audio telephone link similar to that of a conference call.
ACGIH® is pleased to offer webinar attendees an audio option. U.S. and Canadian attendees can connect to the audio portion of the webinar via the toll-free audio telephone link or listen to the audio portion through an audio stream directly through their computer. Other international participants can listen via the audio stream without incurring additional telephone charges.
This webinar contains 2.5 hours of instruction and may be eligible for ABIH CM credit. See the ABIH website (www.abih.org) for CM credit criteria. This webinar may qualify for .15 BCSP (SP) Continuance of Certification (COC) Point for Certified Safety Professionals. Participants seeking confirmation of attendance for the webinar from ACGIH® must attend the live webinar or view the archive and submit a final exam and evaluation. Certificates of Completion will be issued in a timely manner after receipt and completion of these items.
