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 1.0 hours in duration and consists of a live presentation given via the Internet with no option for call in audio.
