Part 2: Genotoxicity/Carcinogenicity: Identifying and Managing Risk Associated With Occupational Carcinogens (Tuesday, October 22, 1:00-2:00 pm ET) LIVE WEBINAR


This webinar on genotoxicity/carcinogenicity will begin with a brief plain language overview of both, including what classes of chemicals are common occupational carcinogens. Examples of chemicals that cause cancer will be reviewed along with how genotoxicity and/or carcinogenicity is correctly communicated on the SDS. Attendees will be provided access to printable flash cards on occupational carcinogens that may aid in their future study.

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

  • Explain genotoxicity and carcinogenicity in plain language
  • Identify toxicological terms used to communicate genotoxicity and carcinogenicity
  • Apply an understanding of the mechanisms of carcinogenicity to prioritize chemical hazards
  • Analyze Safety Data Sheets (SDS) more effectively to identify chemicals that cause genotoxicity and/or carcinogenicity
  • Discuss 3-5 chemicals that cause cancer in the occupational setting.
