Not All Gloves Are Created Equal: Guidelines and Tools for Selecting Chemical-Resistant Products
Did you know that not all gloves are created equal? Gloves of similar thickness and polymer type can perform drastically different from each other. Not all manufacturers or suppliers test their own gloves when developing chemical resistance charts. They often rely on data for other products. Breakthrough time and permeation rate should be evaluated together. There are steps IHs can take to ensure the products they select will provide improved chemical resistance. Topics in Controls: Heat Stress, PCBs, and Diesel Particles
This presentation will discuss the success and challenges encountered at a utility when revising their indoor heat stress program to include preplacement medical evaluations for all indoor workers exposed to hot environments. Nanotechnology: Updates and Challenges for the Future, Part 2
The number of new engineered nanomaterials that are more active, efficient, and versatile in their commercial applications continues to rise steadily. However, there are still many questions regarding potential human health implications making the IH role challenging. This session will provide an update in: 1) Exposure assessment: current state of sampling techniques, and 2) Risk management and control of occupational exposures to nanoparticles. Current understanding of the hazards, risks and potential legal responsibilities that need to be managed will be discussed. Design Review for Industrial Hygienists, Part 1 and Design Review for Industrial Hygienists, Part 2
This classroom experience demonstrates the design review process. When and how to recommend and apply ventilation engineering and safety principles and related calculations to design a variety of workplaces, knowledge of design principals, and the regulations and standards pertinent to both industrial hygiene and building design will be discussed. Topics in Controls: Respirable Crystalline Silica, Fit-Test, and Welding Fume
OSHA recently revised their crystalline silica regulation. Based on historical sampling results, a company with two glass manufacturing sites was out of compliance with the regulation and was provided with estimates up to $10 million to reduce exposures. This presentation will provide an overview of sampling methodologies and practical ideas for exposure reduction. This study was conducted to evaluate if the RFC test methods developed for half-mask respirators are applicable to full facepiece respirators. Benchmark RFC test data for full facepiece air-purifying respirators were collected by using PortaCount Plus. As the required fit factor increased, the panel passing rate (PPR) decreased slightly. This study concluded that the test methods developed for half-mask respirators are appropriate for full facepiece respirators. Additive Manufacturing: Workplace Health and Safety, Part 2
In 2017, the NIOSH Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Field Studies Team conducted field studies in several companies using additive manufacturing technologies. This session will present an overview on: 1) how to plan and conduct an IH assessment in additive manufacturing environments; 2) the current state-of-the-science on potential emissions and exposures from 3D printers; 3) using ventilated enclosures to contain emissions from large bot farms; and 4) data from field measurements of emissions of 3D printers.
