Latest Developments, Emerging Issues and Impacts in Beryllium Regulations
July 29, 2020
2:00–3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time



The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has proposed changes to its beryllium standards for general industry, construction, and shipyards, particularly with regard to the ancillary provisions in these standards. Some of the proposals are driven by settlement agreements with litigating parties. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Energy in 2016 proposed changes to its Chronic Beryllium Disease Prevention Program, 10 CFR 850, but these changes have not yet been promulgated. New information on both the OSHA and DOE regulations, to the extent available, will be provided, along with lessons learned during the 20 years that 10 CFR 850 has been in effect. Also, updated information on sampling and analytical requirements and available methods will be provided.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Identify the latest regulatory changes for beryllium health and safety.
  • Review lessons learned and best practices from 20 years of experience with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) beryllium regulations.
  • Apply these requirements as necessary in workplace monitoring, housekeeping, etc.
  • Determine which sampling and analytical methods can be used for given situations.
  • Understand the potential for sampling and analysis of beryllium in or near real time.

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.
