Check out this free webcast from greenbiz.com "Benign by Design: Characterizing and Balancing Risk"talking about the California Department of Public Health’s Standard Method for the Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic Chemical Emissions from Indoor Sources Using Environmental Chambers Version 1.1 (Emission testing method for California Specification 01350) highlights how a hazard is identified and characterized and, from that, an estimate of risk is made. The goal is to understand risk from exposure to chemicals by various routes; dermal, oral and inhalation. Finally, we must ensure that products designed to reduce toxic material burden also meet functional requirements.
In this webcast you will learn:
- The current requirements of the California product emission testing method (“01350” or “standard method”) and future plans by the California Department of Public Health to revise that method.
- How risk is estimated from an understanding of our exposure to the hazard.
- Challenges in eliminating chemical classes with respect to fire and electrical safety.
