Industrial Hygiene Exposure Modeling

Predicting what worker exposures will be to chemicals and particles can be invaluable for many reasons, such as to estimate (1) exposures that happened in the past; (2) anticipated exposures during design and planning phases; (3) exposure where no quantitative method exists or are difficult to measure; or (4) peak exposures, to name just a few. Although it is difficult to model these exposures precisely, modeling tools are a proven technique to improve the ability of the industrial hygienist to identify exposure scenarios that may exceed health-based exposure limits. This course will teach the fundamental concepts of modeling worker exposure and demonstrate the use of the American Industrial Hygiene Association’s IHMOD freeware. Opportunities for class participation and hand-on exercises will be provided. A laptop with Microsoft Excel software is recommended.

Complimentary Webinar: Join Us for Navigating OSHA's Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule - 2019 Update

It has already been three years since the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) finalized its revised standard for occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica. Now, most of the provisions are in full effect. Are you in compliance? This final rule established a new permissible exposure limit of 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline silica per cubic meter of air (50 m3) as an 8-hour time-weighted average in all industries covered by the rule, in order to prevent exposed workers from developing silicosis, and other non-malignant respiratory diseases, lung cancer and kidney diseases. The rule is comprised of two standards, one for Construction and one for General Industry and Maritime, in order to tailor requirements to the circumstances found in these sectors.

Join Trinity Consultants and SafeBridge, as we discuss the regulatory implications of OSHA's Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule on your operations and help you develop compliance strategies. We will discuss the key provisions of the rule, appropriate compliance strategies, and lessons learned from several years of implementation.


Webinar: Navigating OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule

On March 24, 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) finalized its existing standards for occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica. OSHA has determined that employees exposed to respirable crystalline silica at the previous permissible exposure limits face a significant risk of developing silicosis, and other non-malignant respiratory diseases, lung cancer and kidney diseases. This final rule establishes a new permissible exposure limit of 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline silica per cubic meter of air (50 µg/m3) as an 8-hour time-weighted average in all industries covered by the rule. The rule is comprised of two standards, one for Construction and one for General Industry and Maritime, in order to tailor requirements to the circumstances found in these sectors.  Both standards take effect on June 23, 2016.

Join Trinity Consultants and SafeBridge, as we discuss the regulatory implications of OSHA's Final Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule on your operations and develop compliance strategies. We will discuss the key provisions of the rule, compliance schedule and appropriate compliance strategies.



Webinar: Practical Industrial Hygiene Statistics

In typical industrial hygiene data sets, there are common pitfalls in interpreting the data, even among experienced industrial hygienists. This webinar will help the attendee understand the sources of uncertainty and variability in industrial hygiene data, and how to choose a statistical analysis tool, particularly when only a few samples are collected. Traditional and advanced statistical tools are under-utilized and often misunderstood and misapplied. The strengths and limitations of three statistical approaches - traditional statistics, Bayesian statistics, and rule-based approaches – are compared through the application of real-world and modeled data.  The appropriate choice and use of each tool depends on the circumstances and data.
