An important element of risk assessment for hazardous substances is the occupational exposure limit value of a substance. The limit value allows you to check whether you are compliant and have sufficiently controlled the health risks. Limit values come in many shapes and sizes: TLVs, WEELs, DNELs, DMELs, SCOELs, BOELs, IOELs, MAK, BEIs, etc. On the other hand, there are also substances for which no limit value is available at all. This masterclass provides insight into how limit values are derived, and gives an overview of good information sources/websites, a hierarchy for selection, a simple method for deriving tentative limit values and practical examples.
This masterclass is the third 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 29 April 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.
