Measurement and Modeling of Dermal Exposures Using an Integrated Conceptual Model for Quantitative Skin Surface Sampling
July 30, 2020
2:00–3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time



Modeling is an important tool to assess exposures in the absence of measured data. For dermal exposure assessment specifically, the most comprehensive models take a systematic approach to characterizing the multiple potential compartments and pathways of exposure. However, some of the identified dermal exposure compartments have been only minimally studied to determine the potential for measurable transfer of different substances between each of the compartments. Factors influencing transfer such as environmental conditions, skin hydration, and repeated contacts are also often poorly understood. This presentation will address the current understanding of quantitative transfer between different compartments that may contribute to dermal exposures based on recent research, including: object(s) to skin, skin to skin, skin to clothing, skin to gloves, skin to surfaces, and skin to saliva, as well as the effects of skin hydration and other conditions of exposure.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn the key sources of dermal exposure
  • Describe the primary methods for dermal exposure assessment sampling
  • Quanitify the range of measured transfer to and from the skin for dermal exposures to solids
  • Characterize the effects of skin hydration and other environmental influences
  • Understand the potential effects of repeated skin contact on loading and transfer

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.
