Occupational Exposure Banding – The Future is NOW
August 4, 2020
2:00–3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time



This is Part 1 of a  part series of educational sessions on the power and promise of Occupational Exposure & Control Banding. Sam Paik will speak of the quantitative validation of the CB Nanotool first developed in support of researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for the emerging field of nanomaterials. Twelve years after the development and application of the Control Banding (CB) Nanotool, there remains no quantitative "gold standard" to serve as an alternative to the qualitative assessment. Sam will present the evaluation of the CB Nanotool (Version 2.0) across a total of twenty-eight ENP activities. A combination of real-time monitoring, filter analysis, and

microscopic analysis was used to assess various metrics, including mass concentration, particle number concentration, and particle speciation. This represents an independent quantitative validation of CB Nanotool risk level outcomes to effectively control worker exposures. Dave Zalk then stir passions on the market reality of insufficient IH resources to undertake traditional exposure judgment fueled risk assessments for 2.5 Billion workers, and challenge the audience that CB NanoTool offers the first Gold Standard of Exposure Banding. Steve Jahn will explore the shift in culture to elimination of real and perceived risk, the inability to respond with suf_cient resource

for data collection that supports conventional exposure judgments, and how OEBs bridge the gap for proper exposure decisions.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, attendees will gain:

  • Knowledge of real field tested application of an exposure control banding logic for nanomaterials and the efforts at its' validation.
  • An understanding of the level of effort and return on investment to show the validity of exposure banding when no authoritative OELs are available.
  • An understanding of the utility for exposure banding in fulfilling otherwise omitted exposures from a complete exposure judgment for workers.
  • An appreciation of the opportunity to advance exposure banding into current yet incomplete exposure judgment profiles for their work environments.

Who Should Attend this Webinar?

Industrial and Occupational Hygienists who wish to learn about the potential and promise of occupational exposure banding techniques to supplement conventional exposure assessment judgments.

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.
