Litton (Office of Mine Safety and Health Research (OMSHR) at National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)).
" The meeting is multi-disciplinary in its approach to addressing topics within exposure (e.g. controls, instrumentation / measurement), hazard (e.g. deposition/ clearance of inhaled particles, fate / mechanisms of disease) and risk assessment (e.g. health impacts and links with policy) of particles brought together to under the theme of human occupational health. "
" Th[is] meeting brings together leading researchers on the adverse effects of particles on the lungs and extrapulmonary target tissues to showcase cutting edge research and debate solutions to the challenges faced within particle research and risk assessment. "
Concerned and aware TINCers are strongly urged to engage and to also consider cross-disciplinary educational pursuits in specialist occupational hygiene studies via the BOHS Diploma of Professional Competence in Occupational Hygiene.
