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.


Complimentary Webinar: Optimizing Ventilation For COVID-19

SafeBridge has developed a new 1.25 hour Complimentary Webinar.  This webinar will discuss the latest thinking regarding the impact ventilation systems may have on controlling the spread of COVID-19.

Who Should attend?

Facilities management and environmental, health and safety professionals tasked with identifying best practices for the operation of building heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

USP <800> Facility and Sampling Fundamentals - Are You Getting Ready?

The publication of USP <800> has brought heightened awareness of the importance of proper facility construction and healthcare staff protection from hazardous drug (HD) exposure. While the regulatory status of USP <800> has been delayed due to appeals to USP<797>, most facilities are working towards implementing many of the elements within USP <800>.  When handling HDs, the following approach is needed for healthcare staff and product protection purposes, facility design, and patient safety: 

  • Having the appropriate facility and containment requirements to minimize worker exposure and maintain product quality/sterility;
  • HD identification:
  • Risk assessment for managing the use of HDs:
  • Development of a plan of action for managing the risks associated with HDs; and
  • Assessment of the downstream risks of HD exposure beyond the pharmacy and administration areas

This webinar will serve as an introduction to USP <800> with an emphasis on practical approaches to the design of the facility and HD containment approaches; determining where to sample, and how to use “environmental sampling” data to effectively minimize worker HD exposure. The webinar will be 1 hour long and will take place on June 10th at 12pm CT/1pm ET.

Who Should Attend:

  • Pharmacy management and staff (hospitals, clinics, compounding)
  • Oncology nurses
  • Engineers
  • EHS staff
  • Regulatory compliance professionals
  • Industrial hygienists

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.

WorkingBuildings Book Club: A Conversation with Kill Shot Author, Jason Dearen

This presentation will include a moderated Q&A conversation with Kill Shot Author, Jason Dearen. Recently published in February, 2021, Kill Shot tells the frighteningly true story of the events surrounding the worst modern day compounding public health catastrophe: the 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak which led to 64 deaths and over 700 cases of infection as a result of contaminated steroid injections from the New England Compounding Center. NECC failed to follow regulatory guidances, compounding standards, and violated its state board of pharmacy license. It failed to conduct appropriate monitoring for sterility, potency of finished sterile products, and failed to appropriately maintain the environment for manufacturing sterile drugs. Environmental monitoring (EM) is the cornerstone of all compounding and manufacturing quality programs. Pharmacy and manufacturing cleanrooms operating within the scope of USP <797>/<800> or FDA cGMP are held to extremely high standards for environmental monitoring and must establish a routine EM sampling program. Facilities must also establish administrative and engineering controls as the foundation of the EM program, Quality program, and overall compounding and manufacturing.

WorkingBuildings industry professionals have deep expertise in facility design, HVAC and engineering controls, pharmacy operations, and regulatory compliance and can assist your facility with program compliance.

Who Should Attend:

  • Pharmacy management and staff (hospitals, clinics, compounding)
  • Facilities and Process Engineers
  • EHS staff
  • Regulatory compliance and Safety professionals
  • Industrial hygienists
  • Pharmaceutical and chemical plant environmental health and safety professionals
  • Pharmaceutical R&D safety coordinators
  • Environmental engineers
  • Pharmaceutical quality control and quality assurance personnel
  • Plant managers
