Global occupational health and workplace hazard monitoring expert Casella has announced its schedule of webinars for 2021. The line-up of free-to-attend, virtually accessible webinars covers the firm’s areas of core competency, including workplace monitoring for dust, gas and vapour hazards, as well as instrumentation usage and best practice. The sessions will also cover monitoring for Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) and sampling for asbestos. In order to reach worldwide attendees, two sessions will be run on each date, with one taking place at 10am and a later session at 3pm to ensure learners across multiple time zones can benefit. Each webinar will conclude with a Q&A session to recap.
The webinar schedule is set to run as follows:
23rd June – Setting up Air Sampling Pumps
Setting up air sampling pumps and their associated items is paramount to ensuring accurate exposure data. This webinar covers selecting the correct pump, setting up a ‘sample train’ and ensuring accurate flow, as well as best practice to ensure good quality data.
21st July – Introduction to HAV Monitoring
Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is a serious condition that can be prevented with the correct control of exposure. This webinar reviews the terminology around HAV measurement, legislation and exposure limits, as well as how to measure exposure on tools correctly and subsequently calculate exposure levels.
11th August – Introduction to Asbestos Sampling
This session will provide a quick insight into the international use of asbestos, both now and historically, its associated health risks and how to perform air sampling for asbestos. Attendees will be guided through the equipment and accessories needed with best practice advice on how to set up equipment.
15th September – Introduction to Dust Sampling
This webinar will guide attendees through different facets of dust monitoring using air sampling pumps, including types of dust to measure and the selection of equipment, such as sampling heads or filters. Additionally, the webinar will cover how to calculate airborne concentration and exposure.
20th October – Use of SLM’s and Noise Dosimeters
This session will guide attendees through the applications and uses of noise dosimeters and sound level meters, and the pros and cons of each. This session will also provide a best practice guide to getting the most from noise monitoring equipment, and critical ‘do’s and don’ts’ of instrumentation.
24th November – Introduction to Sampling Gases and Vapours
Personal sampling of vapours and gases requires knowledge to select the correct sampling media and the right accessories and flow rates. This webinar covers sources of information, how to set up a ‘sample train’, and how to select the correct air-sampling pump and equipment calibration.
