ACGIH is pleased to present the following webinar:


Date: LIVE on February 12, 2008

Time: 2:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time (GMT -05:00, New York)

Registration and Course Information Link: 

Early Registration Deadline: February 5, 2008

Course Content:

Control Banding describes a user-friendly qualitative assessment process
allows the user to quickly determine appropriate engineering controls
to protect workers based on readily available information on chemical
and potential for exposure. This process is intended for small and
medium sized 
enterprises, but large corporations are also considering its
application. This 
webinar will present and critique the version of Control Banding
promoted by 
the United Kingdom Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the
Labour Organization (ILO) and provides information on the Control
Banding system 
used in the pharmaceutical industry.

Control Banding should be viewed as an "expert system." As such, it will
be broken 
into its component parts - Hazard Group Prediction Model, Exposure Limit
Model, Exposure Prediction Model, and predefined control strategies.
Each component 
will be described and critiqued. Additionally, diacetyl, an artificial
butter flavoring 
ingredient with no exposure limit, will be used as an example to
illustrate how Control 
Banding is applied, and to demonstrate both its strengths and
weaknesses. For example, 
varying information on the health hazards (e.g., the assigned
risk-phases) and/or 
exposure assumptions can make significant differences in the final
decision to improve 
or not improve controls. Specific recommendations on using and applying
Banding will be presented to improve the effectiveness of the existing
Control Banding 
scheme, including the need to perform verification studies. 

Presented by - Paul Hewett, PhD, CIH; Bruce D. Naumann, PhD, DABT; Mark
Stenzel, CIH; 
and Paul Wambach, CIH
