In Case You Missed It: AIHA Debuted New Publications at AIHce 2009
Even if you stopped by the AIHA’s InfoCentral booth last week at the Toronto Convention Centre, chances are good that with all the other activities going on and all the other literature to browse in the Expo hall, some of the association’s newest publications might have escaped your notice. But it’s not too late. The following are three of the titles AIHA debuted at AIHce 2009:
Continuous Monitoring for Hazardous Material Releases
By The American Industrial Hygiene Association and Center for Chemical Process Safety
Stock No: SHWB09-759
Member/Nonmember Price: $69.95
Whether occurring accidentally or through acts of terrorism, catastrophic chemical releases must be identified early to mitigate their consequences. Continuous sensor monitoring can detect catastrophic chemical releases early enough to curb extreme amounts of damage. This book provides guidance on the applicability, selection, placement, use, and maintenance of gas detection systems, detailing the necessity of preparing any workplace from falling victim to a gas-leak catastrophe.
Mathematical Models for Estimating Occupational Exposure to Chemicals, 2nd Edition
Edited by Charles B. Keil, Catherine E. Simmons, and T. Renée Anthony
Stock No: AEAM09-379
Member Price: $70 / Nonmember Price: $95
This newly updated work presents a systematic and comprehensive approach to exposure models and their advantages. Its 17 chapters discuss general principles of physical and chemical models, dermal exposure models, exposure reconstruction, and more. The models are being used more frequently and creatively, as these techniques for worker exposure modeling are improving rapidly, the authors note. This volume is a practical tool for any professional concerned with exposure assessment and management.
