HSL: Biological Monitoring for Chemical Exposures at Work – Buxton, 9 Mar 2017

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1/2 day course on Biological Monitoring for Chemical Exposures at Work.

9 March 2017

Biological monitoring is a useful tool for occupational hygiene
and health professionals. It is based on the analysis of hazardous
substances or their metabolites in urine, blood or breath, and is
used to assess chemical exposures by inhalation, ingestion and
absorption through the skin.

Biological monitoring is particularly valuable where substances
may be absorbed through the skin or where control of exposure
relies on personal protective equipment. It can also be used to
investigate the behavioural aspects of exposure controls.

This workshop is an overview of biological monitoring and how it
can enhance the service that occupational hygiene and
health professionals offer.

  • An introduction to biological monitoring.
  • Practicalities – how to establish a biological monitoring
    programme.
  • View from a practitioner – using biological monitoing to assess
    chemical exposures.
  • Practical session – small group working using a case
    study.
  • Interpreting results – understanding and acting on the results
    received.

The workshop is
designed for occupational hygiene and health providers who are
interested in what biological monitoring can do for them and their
clients and for company employees specifically responsible for
worker health protection.

The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of
Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good
links to mainline train stations and Manchester International
Airport.
