Part 1: Liver: Identifying and Managing Common Hepatotoxicants in the Workplace (Tuesday, September 17, 1:00-2:00 pm ET) LIVE WEBINAR

Description

As the first lecture in the series, this webinar on the liver will begin with a brief plain language overview of liver physiology, including why the liver is a common target organ for chemicals. Examples of chemicals that cause liver toxicity will be reviewed along with how liver toxicity may be communicated on the SDS. Attendees will be provided access to printable flash cards on liver toxicants that may aid in their future study.

Learning Objectives
After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain liver physiology/pathophysiology in plain language
  • Identify toxicological terms used to communicate liver injury
  • Apply an understanding of the mechanisms of liver injury to prioritize chemical hazards
  • Analyze Safety Data Sheets (SDS) more effectively to identify chemicals that cause liver injury
  • Discuss 3-5 chemicals that cause liver injury
