Real-Time Systems for Industrial Hygiene, the Driving Forces for Tomorrow

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST  
Host: AIHA
By: Ronald McMahan, Director, Business and Solution Development, SGS Galson

Many of us have lived through some incredible advances in technology.

We have gone from a phone with a cord to a phone in a bag to a smart communication device in our pocket. We have gone from licking a stamp to faxing documents to an email system that connects us to the world, allowing for instant delivery of our words and documents. We have gone from visiting the library to “Googling it.”

These advances have all impacted how CIHs do their jobs. You may have been buried in your day-to-day work and adapted without stopping to think about these changes. You’ve probably forgotten your first email address or web search engine.

What if you knew what was next on the technology horizon?

This webinar will examine technological changes that have impacted us and our IH projects in the last 30 years, and then look at the technological changes that will form our future—especially in how we monitor and sample.

Great ideas come from those who do the work and are looking for a better way. That’s you. This webinar seeks to expand knowledge of current technology as well as technology that’s coming soon and can be used to improve the tools we use to protect workers.
