AIHA to Host Nonionizing Radiation Webinar

The American Industrial Hygiene Association will host "Cell Phones, Microwaves, Pacemakers and More . . .Nonionizing Radiation Myths and Realities," an introductory TeleWeb Virtual Seminar on Oct. 22, 2008, from 2-4:30 p.m. ET.

Nonionizing radiation can be a technically challenging area for industrial hygienists to work in due to the heavy dependence on physics and, for many, the limited opportunities to work in the area. According to AIHA, there is considerable controversy regarding the potential health effects from the many different types of nonionizing radiation and their sources.

This presentation will discuss some of the common myths associated with certain nonionizing radiation principles or outcomes, as well as how to tell the difference between fact and fiction.

Featured speakers include Thomas P. Fuller, ScD, CIH, MSPH, MBA, Environmental Performance Group; Dave Baron, PE, electrical engineer consultant; Margaret Levin Phillips, Ph.D., CIH, University of Oklahoma; and Stephen Hemperly, MS, CIH, CSP, CLSO, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies Inc.

Attendees will be provided with tools to enable them to:

  • Understand the health effects associated with occupational exposure to germicidal ultraviolet light used in numerous industries.
  • Recognize misinformation presented in the media.
  • Understand certain health and safety risks claimed to be linked to cell phone usage, microwaves, and more.
