Science and Use

November 18, 2020
2:00–3:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time



This webinar will provide a summary of the ACGIH® Cold Stress TLV® with a focus on guidance and prevention of cold-weather injuries. The physiological effects of cold exposure will be discussed followed by guidance to prevent hypothermia and frostbite. The effects of acute cold water exposure will be presented along with immersion guidance, the use of the wind chill temperature chart, and selecting cold-weather clothing for preventing cold weather injuries.

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. This ACGIH® webinar is 1.5 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.
