Occupational health surveillance is a system of ongoing health checks that is required for employees who are exposed to noise or vibration, ionising radiation, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health. In practice, it appears to be difficult to offer a health surveillance program that is tailored to the actual risks as a result of exposure to hazardous substances. This requires good cooperation between occupational hygienist / safety expert and the company doctor. In this masterclass we show how you could approach this and what the possibilities and limitations are.
This masterclass is the ninth of the Chemrade Masterclasses Chemical Risk Assessment. These masterclasses have been developed for Chemrade customers, partners and close relations who want to deepen and update their knowledge of Chemical Risk Assessment. There are 11 online masterclasses of approximately 1 hour that will be given in the coming year. The masterclasses cover the entire process of risk assessment of hazardous substances in your company: from strategy, via exposure estimation with models, exposure measurements, biological monitoring, health monitoring, to compliance testing and control measures. Each masterclass provides a brief overview of current knowledge (state-of-the-art), issues, useful tools / solutions and examples from practice.
Chemrade customers, partners and close relations are cordially invited to register for these Chemrade Masterclasses. There are no costs associated with this. Each masterclass can also be taken separately. Participants receive a certificate of participation. The masterclasses are given in both Dutch and English. Dr. Joost van Rooij, Chief Science Officer (PhD, registered toxicologist and senior occupational hygienist) guarantees the content of the masterclasses.
Date and registration
The masterclass will take place on Thursday 8 July from 15:00 to 16:00 (Amsterdam time!). You will receive a link and access code in advance, which you can use to follow this online masterclass.
