Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 - 2:00pm EST: Predicting Exposure to Hazards Using the Exposure Control Database
Presented by: Dr. Babak Memarian, Director of Exposure Control Technologies Research at CPWR and Sara Brooks, Industrial Hygienist, CPWR

Predicting worker exposure to jobsite hazards such as silica and implementing effective controls to protect workers have historically been a challenge in the construction industry. However; despite the need, the construction industry lacks a system to help health and safety practitioners proactively predict exposure to hazards and implement effective controls to protect workers accordingly. To bridge this gap, CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training has developed an interactive, online “Exposure Control Database” that calculates exposure to four major hazards including silica, welding fumes, noise, and lead using prepopulated objective data. Please join us for this 30 minute webinar to learn more about CPWR’s Exposure Control Database and how to use it to estimate worker exposure to hazards.
