The Yorkshire region are holding a free to attend online webinar – entitled “COMED - A Tool for Selecting Effective Exposure Controls“. The workshop will give participants the opportunity to try the COMED database on selected case study scenarios and will give an update on latest developments and future plans.
Chris Keen, BOHS President Elect will also be talking about her presidential theme.
Date & Time:
Thursday 9th December 2021, 14.00 – 16.00
Chris Keen – BOHS President Elect. Chris will talk about her presidential theme of broadening access to occupational hygiene for hard to reach groups, such as agency workers and those employed by very small businesses. She will also talk about the need for a more sustainable approach to occupational health risk management at all levels with an increased focus on prevention of harmful exposures and better management of workplace controls.
Andy Gillies has been involved with COMED from its inception. Andy is a former President of BOHS and a regular presenter at conferences and regional workshops. He has been an advocate of practical, effective exposure controls throughout his career.
Mike Perry joined the COMED management team in 2020. Mike is an OH consultant specialising in pharmaceutical potent compound safety. His work includes evaluating the performance capability of containment equipment to nanogramme levels, and developing procedures for the optimisation of specialist engineering controls.
Workshop Overview. The Control Measures Efficiency Database (COMED) has been developed as a web-based tool to enable people to quantify the % reduction in exposure they can reasonably expect from using common exposure control measures. It is a user-friendly database that not only brings together lots of exposure-related efficiency data, but also provides supporting information to help highlight the day-to-day practicalities of achieving and maintaining expected performance from the control measure in the workplace. The workshop will allow all attendees to navigate their way through the database and answer pertinent questions on the case studies.
CPD: This meeting will count towards CPD.
