C&IH will lead a professional development course titled “Asbestos Risk Assessment for Occupational and Environmental Health Applications” on April 16th at the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) 2018 Annual Conference in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Participants in this PDC will be led through several case studies related to occupational exposure to asbestos fibers or potential impact from soil contamination and will learn how to use a four-steps risk assessment process to obtain qualitative and quantitative information about specific types of risk. Speakers include Andrey Korchevskiy and Jim Rasmuson of C&IH, Andrew Darnton of HSE, and Bruce Case from McGill University. A full description of the PDC is available here and additional information about the conference is available at the BOHS Annual Conference website.
