PDC: Exposure Assessment Professional Judgment

This one day Professional Judgment Course will provide the practicing industrial hygienist with essential background information and hands-on exercises for improving professional judgments for exposure assessment. The presentations and workshops will highlight some of the more common biases encountered in exposure assessment judgments and present effective strategies including mathematical modeling for minimizing these biases. A virtual workplace tour supplemented by exposure assessment data will be provided as part of the interactive workshops, giving participants the opportunity to apply cutting edge modeling free-ware tools and observe first-hand how these tools lead to more accurate professional judgment decisions.
