ASTM Sponsors 2008 Asbestos Monitoring Conference

The 2008 Johnson Conference: Critical Issues in Monitoring Asbestos will be held July 14-18, 2008, at the University of Vermont in Burlington. Sponsored by ASTM International Committee D22 on Air Quality, the event will focus on the current regulatory framework, risk assessment and management, and methods for monitoring asbestos in air and soils. National and international experts in asbestos monitoring research will present their latest findings, highlighting current monitoring strategies, methods, data, results interpretation, and quality assurance associated with asbestos monitoring programs, says ASTM.

Johnson Conferences have for more than two decades served as international benchmarks for developing and refining asbestos monitoring methods and have made major contributions to understanding and advancing asbestos monitoring technology, says ASTM, adding that next summer's event will be of particular interest to environmental consultants, industrial hygienists, laboratory analysts and managers, building owners, and government officials.
