Esteemed occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) professionals, technology innovators, and industry leaders converge at this year's American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Expo (AIHce EXP) in Phoenix, Arizona.
Connect with our Health Sciences experts, Pamela Dopart, Ph.D., CIH, and Dilpreet Singh, Ph.D., presenting at AIHce EXP 2023, along with our attending experts, Renee Kalmes, M.S.P.H., CIH, Mike Posson, M.P.H., CIH, and Philip Pape, M.P.H, to discuss your unique health and safety challenges and how our multidisciplinary approach and unmatched expertise can help.
"Occupational Health and Safety Implications of Nano-Enabled Building Materials Across the Lifecycle"
TUESDAY, 5/23, 3:15-3:45 PM
I1: Research Roundup Nanotechnology Session
Speaker: Dilpreet Singh, Ph.D.
Explore the implications of simulated exposure and in-vitro toxicological characterization data on the airborne release of nanomaterials during the lifecycle of nano-enabled building materials for occupational health and safety.
"Use of New Ethylene Oxide Exposure Data to Inform Risk Management Practices"
WEDNESDAY, 5/24, 10:30-11:00 AM
M2: Research Roundup Risk Assessment Session
Speaker: Pamela Dopart, Ph.D., CIH
The general population is exposed to ethylene oxide (EtO) — the primary chemical used to sterilize medical equipment and supplies — through multiple pathways, which complicates any EtO exposure assessment. This presentation will discuss recently available EtO monitoring data collected on multiple exposure pathways, allowing for the assessment of total and source-specific EtO exposure and supporting risk management practices development.
"Based on a 2016 reevaluation of EtO's carcinogenic potential, the Environmental Protection Agency is taking steps to reduce EtO exposures with two proposals that would reduce annual EtO emissions at commercial sterilization facilities by 80% from current levels, restrict how much EtO these facilities can use, and create new safeguards for workers."
