Cardno ChemRisk oil & gas webinar series launches with discussion on dermal risk assessment techniques and considerations

On Wednesday May 15, Scott Dotson, PhD, MS, CIH and Mark Maddaloni, DRPH, DABT will present a webinar titled “Dermal Risk Assessments: Techniques and Considerations for the Oil & Gas Industry,” during which they will highlight key considerations when assessing the health risks associated with dermal exposures to hazardous chemicals.

Hazardous chemicals most frequently encountered in the oil and gas industry are hydrocarbon-based (e.g., polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, etc.) with varying degrees of volatility and toxicity. Webinar attendees will hear details on the current state of risk assessment tools and techniques available to characterize the health risk of dermal contacts with chemicals.

The webinar takes place Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 10 a.m. PDT / 1 p.m. EDT. Those interested can register themselves directly through this link.

Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions, and ABIH® Diplomates can earn up to 1 technical contact hour for this event.
