Editorial Calendar

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Included in every issue is the Newswatch standing column. This includes short articles and updates from NIOSH, the CDC, EPA, OSHA, and other government agencies. The focus is on news, new research and findings and best practices. Hot button topics like silica and GHS labeling have appeared here throughout the past year.


​NOV​EMBER

  • Wildfire Smoke Contamination Testing: We all know that post-fire assessment and cleanup is a complicated issue. Although many assessments rely on known problems and visual evaluation, testing can be an essential component in addressing “invisible” contamination concerns or determining if any residual contamination is above the “normal or typical background” levels. But what to test for and how to use the results are big questions without clear resolution.

  • 3-D Printing: Possible Health Effects and Controls: Applications of 3-D prin​ting have increased dramatically in recent years. But 3-D printing carries some health risks, and as the machines become more affordable, many employers find themselves unprepared to protect workers. 

  • RL vs LOQ vs LOD: Confused by these acronyms on your laboratory's results? This article explains laboratory Reporting Limits (RL) and how they differ from the Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) and Limit of Detection (LOD).

DECE​MBER

  • Models for Responding to a Hazardous Materials Emergency: Written from the perspective of a chemical engineer/industrial hygienist who has been responding to emergency chemical spills for over 15 years, this article discusses the use of on-site monitoring alongside atmospheric dispersion modeling to validate model predictions. Topics include lessons learned in response to chlorine emergency releases and other dispersion events, and the effectiveness of models in accurately predicting air concentrations. Case studies will summarize the performance of predictive models relative to exposure monitoring. Readers will learn about the emergency response utility of a wide range of model structures.

  • Potential Applications of Occupational Exposure Bands for Emergency Response: Occupational exposure banding uses available toxicological data to create an occupational exposure band (OEB), which supports decisions about exposure control strategies. This article suggests possible uses of OEBs in emergency response activities.

  • Preparing for a Disaster: Practical tips for IHs on how to prepare their organization for an unforeseen event.
