ACGIH® presents fall webinars for the occupational safety and health professional
ACGIH® will present the Notations: How Are They Assigned and How Should They Be Used in Industrial Hygiene Practice? webinar on November 19, 2019 at the following times:
- 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time
- 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Central Time
- 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time
- 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time
This webinar will focus on the Notations recommended by the Threshold Limit Values for Chemical Substances (TLV®-CS) Committee. This webinar will aim to give attendees an improved understanding of Skin, DSEN, RSEN, OTO notations and the Carcinogen Classifications and how they can use them to optimize their exposure control programs. Following a brief overview, the purpose of special notations will be discussed, which is to highlight toxicity endpoints that set certain chemical substances apart and to alert the practicing industrial hygienist that special considerations need to be given to these materials to ensure adequate protection of workers. For each notation, background information, types of data and specific criteria will be described to help the attendee understand how the committee assigns these notations and classifications. Specific examples will be used throughout the webinar to illustrate how the various notations are assigned and how these should be interpreted and applied by the practicing industrial hygienist.
After participating in this webinar, attendees will:
- Understand the basis for Notations in general and each individually
- Learn how notations complement the TLV-TWAs, TLV-STELs and Ceiling values
- Become familiar with the criteria used to assign each notation
- Determine how to interpret and apply each notation in their workplace
- Learn how to incorporate notations within a comprehensive exposure control program

ACGIH® will also present the Exposures and Impacts Associated with Occupational and Non-occupational Audible Sound and Ototoxic Chemicals webinar on November 21, 2019 at the following times:
- 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time
- 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Central Time
- 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time
- 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time
Overexposure to audible sound is known to cause hearing loss and a variety of other adverse health outcomes. Exposures to ototoxic compounds can also cause hearing loss, either in the absence of, or in combination with, exposure to audible sound. This webinar will describe our current knowledge regarding exposures to harmful audible sound in the workplace and in recreational settings and will also review data on the associations between these exposures and two primary health outcomes, hearing loss and cardiovascular disease. The webinar will also describe available information on exposures to, and impacts of, a range of ototoxic agents.
After participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Describe levels and trends in occupational and recreational exposures to audible sound in the U.S.
- Recognize key health outcomes associated with excessive exposure to audible sound
- Describe common ototoxic agents that workers may encounter in both occupational and non-occupational settings
- Identify recommended exposure limits that can be used to evaluate workers’ exposures to audible sound and ototoxic agents
- Understand available resources from which additional information on these exposures and health outcomes can be obtained
Richard L. Neitzel, PhD, CIH; Hugh Davies, PhD, CIH; and Thais Morata, PhD will present this impactful webinar.
