The industrial hygienist must determine a strategy for sampling based on the evidence of the MSDS, workplace operation, exposure limits, and historical exposure assessment. This course will guide the IH through the sampling strategy process, from assessing the information on the MSDSs through the sample media selection, sampling considerations, and final calculation of results. A guide through the myriad of possible sampling media will be discussed and list of on-line resources for sampling procedures, such as OSHA and NIOSH methods, WEEL methods, and other resources will be supplied. The consideration for when to use passive samplers will be discussed. The sampling requirements to obtain a valid result from the lab, such as the need blank samples, detection limits, sampling times, air volumes, and exposure limits will be covered. 

Instructors will introduce a practical, systematic approach to selecting air-monitoring methods for a wide variety of workplace and indoor air quality environments. Criteria will be introduced to help participants develop a basic understanding of how OSHA and NIOSH methods, and others can be used to develop efficient, cost-effective sampling strategies. Active and diffusive sampler use will be discussed.   ​

​Understanding how industrial hygiene impacts and interacts with the other components of the new ISO 45001 management system is key to successful implementation of the standard. This webinar will foster that understanding by introducing attendees to systems thinking, demonstrating why it is an important component o​f an effective ISO 45001 program. We will focus on the interrelated nature of the exposure risk assessments that industrial hygienists perform. In doing so, we will present strategies for navigating the interlocking relationships between the technical and management aspects of ISO 45001 to create a system—not just a checklist. Ultimately, we will show how a systems approach to workplace health and safety can result in positive benefits across the enterprise.​​


  • Hurricane hazards present unique and complex challenges to all those who confront them. Preparing for, enduring, and recovering from hurricanes requires the partnership of a diverse array of business, government, volunteer, professional organizations, all working in concert towards the common goals of protecting people, pets, and property. One place where this is especially true is Puerto Rico, which, in 2017, suffered one of the most catastrophic hurricane season on recent history and was struck by the powerful Hurricane Maria in 2017 and is still recovering during the present hurricane season. This webinar will examine Puerto Rico’s disaster preparedness, response, and recovery efforts from an industrial hygiene and an environmental health perspective.​​​

  • Emerging trends in technology, such as virtual reality training, the Internet of Things and drones, are changing the landscape of health, safety, and sustainability. How wi​ll they enable us to prevent accidents and improve our culture? The potential is there but ultimately, we must remember one thing: they are tools. In this session, we will explore the safety implications of adding technology into the business model, new hazards around technologies, establishing a new way of thinking, and understanding what it takes to create a learning culture.​

​Many organizations are turning to contractors to help with everyday labor and special projects. But managing these contracts and contractors has unique challenges. This webinar will explore how a large oil and gas company has revamped their management system to more effectively track contractor safety and cumulative exposures.
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. The strengths and limitations of three statistical approaches - traditional statistics, Bayesia​n statistics, and rule-based statistics – are compared through the application of real-world and modeled data.
This webinar will provide an overview of health and safety aspects of the legal cannabis industry, including assessing and controlling potential exposures to the chemicals used in processing the product and the finished product itself. Ergonomic hazards will also be discussed.

This webinar presents information for industrial hygienists on the process of evaluating spaces for odors. ​ 

This webinar will provide OH&S professionals who have to develop, implement or manage an Occupational Health & Safety Management System with the status of the standard and will touch on some of the key sections.​

​​This presentation explores and prioritizes guiding principles for post-acquisition support. 

​This webinar provides an overview of the current risk continuum in organizations, from individual to the enterprise, and beyond – this overview is framed within a risk culture perspective. 
​Learn how to have a conversation about safety using the Make Safety Personal conversation outline, along with real world tips for selling safety to front line supervisors.

Webinar participants will learn methods and considerations for mitigating risk to workers through job hazard analyses that accurately defines essential job steps for completing the work; identifies and describes hazards associated with each job step; and defines effective hazard controls.​

This webinar covers aspects of OSHA's new stance on penalties, inspections and highlight the compliance requirements of targeted OSHA programs and the new rules established for recordkeeping and silica. The webinar showcases successful OSHA compliance practices of two organizations to prepare you for these changes.​​

This webinar is intended to introduce some of the key thought processes and mechanisms that will aid responsible individuals in making decisions that are supportive of their organization’s vision and goals around sustainability.​​

Thousands of companies around the world currently utilize internal, external, or a combination of technical and management resources to conduct regulatory compliance audits, inspections, and assessments of their operations with the results being used as one of the company’s many health and safety performance metrics. This highly audience-participative webinar will take participants through a photographic tour of ‘the worst plant in the world’ through an assemblage of photographs of various regulatory compliance issues. As photos are shown, the instructors will quiz participants on the various issues noted and where they might be found in the OSHA regulations. ​

This webinar will present the major concepts and definitions from the Workplace Violence Primer and Guideline for Industrial Hygienists recently published by AIHA. Occupational safety and health practitioners and industrial hygienists who are not yet familiar with the significance of workplace violence will learn information critical to their role in the prevention of worker injuries and fatalities that result.

​This webinar will discuss the role internal audits play in an effective OHS management system. It will also outline the key elements of an effective program and the roles and responsibilities expected of the audit manager.
  • How Low Do You Go?​
    Exposure monitoring is increasingly being required at lower and lower levels; examples include beryllium, silica, and carbon nanotubes. This webinar will provide an interactive forum on managing ultra-low level exposure monitoring issues using case studies for developing monitoring strategies at microgram levels or below.​

While there’s no “holy grail” of leading indicators, there is a practical approach that organizations can use to elevate their metrics. ​This webinar will provide an overview of the concepts behind a truly practical approach to EHS leading indicators, as well as specific sample metrics and case studies all organizations can put to use at the site, business unit, and/or corporate level. ​
