Here is a on-demand webinar from the American Chemistry Council’s Diisocyanates Panel and Aliphatic Diisocyanates Panel that provides an introduction and basic overview of the available science concerning sensitization and diisocyanate-related occupational asthma.
Speakers include Dr. Ines Krueger of Covestro, Dr. Cynthia Graham of Huntsman and Mr. Mark Spence of the International Isocyanate Institute. The webinar addresses topics such as what is sensitization, what is “work-related” asthma, how does diisocyanate exposure relate to respiratory sensitization, how do doctors diagnose “work-related asthma,” and why are medical surveillance programs important? The intended audience for this webinar includes value chain stakeholders that are involved in product safety interactions, as well as occupational health and safety professionals who may field questions related to the sensitization potential of diisocyanates.
This webinar counts as 1-hour of continuing education credit for SPFA's PCP Certification Program.
