February Technical Meeting – OSHA Enforcement of the Crystalline Silica Standard for ConstructionMelville Marriott: 1350 Walt Whitman Road, Melville, New York, 11747, United States

It has been a little over one year since OSHA began enforcing the crystalline silica dust standard for construction.  We are beginning to see details about enforcement trends.  During this presentation we’ll discuss key parts of the OSHA standard and where we are seeing most OSHA citations being issued.  We’ll review common errors in exposure monitoring, Table 1 controls not being fully and completely utilized, common problems with written exposure control plans, and role of the competent person in implementing the plan.​ Registration Additional information can be found here.

Analyzing Risk: Principles, Concepts, and ApplicationsBoston, MA

Understanding the nature of risks, how people perceive threats to their health, and how risk information is communicated and understood is imperative to ensuring the proper management of risk.

As a participant in this course, you will explore the legal and policy framework which will inform the direction of risk analysis in upcoming years. You will also gain the skills needed to perform a quantitative risk assessment, discuss key factors influencing the effectiveness of risk assessment and management, and apply these concepts in local, state, federal, or international settings.
Who Should Attend
This program will benefit anyone involved in conducting, reviewing, or overseeing risk analysis, risk management, or risk communication activities. Participants come from private corporations across industries, non-profit organizations, and local, state, and national governments.
Learning Objectives
  • Develop and expand capacity with current and emerging methods for quantifying risks
  • Evaluate exposure assessment protocols
  • Differentiate between key assumptions and uncertainties in non-cancer and cancer dose-response models
  • Implement probabilistic methods in uncertainty analysis and risk assessment
  • Identify key factors that influence risk perception and communication
  • Evaluate alternative approaches for valuation of environmental health risk outcomes

Understand the role of risk information in benefit-cost analysis and risk management

  • Help for small and medium-sized businesses to effectively protect their workers
  • Increase worker involvement, so all workers have a voice in workplace safety and health
