Workplace Health Without Borders – asbestos webinars
Although progress has been made toward a global ban, asbestos is still used in many countries. And even in countries with a ban, prevention measures are still insufficient to protect millions of workers exposed to legacy asbestos. WHWB has formed an Asbestos Working Group and has organized three webinars – the first on the extent of the hazard. The second on prevention measures, controls and risk management practices, including substitution, as well as advocacy efforts towards achieving a global ban. The third will focus on technical issues, including measurement limitations and the way forward, as well as exploring the risks for emergency responders including firefighters.
When: June 7, 21, July 12 at 7:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. Eastern daylight time (to allow global participation)
Register for all 3 webinars at: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcoceuqqTIiH91nXhGK0PEZ51F-BX_9j01G
