ACGIH Hosts IH Statistics, Bayesian Decision Analysis Workshop

ACGIH® is planning to host a 2.5-day workshop, titled "Industrial Hygiene Statistics and Bayesian Decision Analysis Workshop," that provides instruction on the basics of industrial hygiene statistics, including censored data analysis, sampling strategy design, and Bayesian Decision Analysis.

The workshop will be held Oct. 6-8, 2008 at the ACGIH® Professional Learning Center in Cincinnati. Early birds who register for the workshop on or before Sept. 8, 2008 will save $100.00.

The application of Bayesian Decision Analysis to industrial hygiene decision-making is new and has been pioneered by the workshop instructor, Paul Hewett, founder and President of Exposure Assessment Solutions Inc. Industrial hygienists, like all other professionals, routinely use professional judgment when making decisions. Bayesian Decision Analysis provides a mechanism for explicitly incorporating professional judgment into this decision-making process.

The workshop will cover the application of Bayesian Decision Analysis to the analysis of gas/particulate data and noise data, relative to a traditional OEL, or in the European Union control banding and pharmaceutical control banding scenarios. The emphasis for this workshop is on attendees gaining an understanding of accurate "decision-making" using sound IH statistics and Bayesian Decision Analysis.
