Part 3: Respiratory Sensitization: Understanding Mechanisms of Sensitization and Mitigating Risk in the Workplace (Tuesday, November 19, 1:00-2:00 pm ET) LIVE WEBINAR


This webinar on respiratory sensitization will begin with a brief plain language overview of lung physiology as it relates to sensitization, including what classes of chemicals are common respiratory sensitizers. Examples of chemicals that cause respiratory sensitization will be reviewed along with how respiratory sensitization is correctly communicated on the SDS. Attendees will be provided access to printable flash cards on respiratory sensitizers that may aid in their future study.

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

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