EHS - Environmental Health and Safety module
Nanoparticle Webinar: Measuring, Evaluating and Managing Nanoparticle Exposures
|The presentation brings together 4 experts in the field of nanoparticle research. Their presentations will touch on nanoparticle sampling, exposure assessment and human health impacts.
Participants will be provided with tools to:
- Characterize and control nanoparticles in the workplace
- Apply real-world techniques that distinguish engineered from incidental nanoparticles
- Understand and explain approaches for evaluating and managing risks for handling nanomaterials in the presence of uncertainty
- Associate various exposure metrics with misclassification problems
- Relate respiratory tract particle deposition patterns to estimation and body burden
- Discuss various factors that influence deposition and toxicity
- Describe different measurement methods used to identify and quantify concentrations of airborne nanoparticles
The webinar is aimed at health & safety professionals, as well as nanotechnology researchers.
DATE: March 8, 2007
TIME: 2:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Redpath Auditorium (Redpath Museum)
This webinar is sponsored by Environmental Health & Safety and is free for members of the McGill community, including graduate students and post-doc fellows engaged in nanoparticle research. No FOAPAL required.
This webinar is produced by the American Industrial Hygiene Association - one of the largest international associations serving the needs of occupational and environmental health professionals practicing industrial hygiene in industry, government, labor, academic institutions, and independent organizations.
