The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) will host "Nanoparticle Update: Measuring, Evaluating, and Managing Exposures," an introductory TeleWeb Virtual Seminar, on March 8, 2007, from 2-4:30 p.m. EST.
AIHA Hosts Nanoparticles TeleWeb
FAIRFAX, VA | Posted on January 31st, 2007
Featured speakers include John Volckens, PhD, assistant professor of environmental and occupational health at Colorado State University; Gurumurthy Ramachandran, PhD, professor in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota; Mark D. Hoover, PhD, CHP, CIH, senior scientist in the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Nanotechnology Research Center and the Division of Respiratory Disease Studies; and Charles L. Geraci, PhD, CIH, member of the NIOSH Nanotechnology Research Council and chief of the Document Development Branch.
Speakers will discuss the following topics:
Practical measurement techniques for airborne nanoparticles in the workplace
Relating nanoparticle exposures to respiratory dose or body burden
Characterizing and controlling exposures to nanoparticles in the workplace
Regulatory and risk overview for managing nanomaterials along the product life cycle
Attendees will be provided with tools to better enable them to:
Describe the different measurement methods used to identify and quantify concentrations of airborne nanoparticles
Relate particle deposition patterns in the respiratory tract to the estimation and body burden, and relate various exposure metrics to exposure misclassification problems
Apply specific techniques to distinguish engineered nanoparticles from incidental nanoparticles in real-world sampling environments
Discuss the various factors of nanoparticle number, diameter, and surface area that may influence deposition and toxicity in the human respiratory tract
Characterize and control nanoparticles in the workplace
Explain approaches for evaluating and managing risks when handling nanomaterials in the presence of uncertainty
TeleWeb Virtual Seminars deliver cutting-edge educational content live via the Internet and telephone from the convenience of an attendee's home or office; multiple attendees can participate for the cost of a single registration. Since TeleWebs debuted in 2000, nearly 12,000 individuals have used this convenient and cost-effective format to further their education and careers.
Participants need Internet access and a telephone, or just a phone, to be part of these live educational events. Additionally, an archive copy of the TeleWeb will be available on CD for purchase.
To register for "Nanoparticle Update: Measuring, Evaluating, and Managing Exposures," please call toll free at (800) 651-7916 or register online at http://www.aiha.org/Content/CE/DL/AIHATeleWebNanoUpdate.htm . AIHA members who register by February 26, 2007, can attend the TeleWeb for $295, nonmembers for $325. After February 26, tuition will be an additional $75 for both members and nonmembers. Every site registered will receive materials prepared by the course presenter, which may be duplicated for each participant.
