Webinar: IH Statistics: Introduction

Even with the advent of software to perform statistical calculations, it is important to understand the underlying concepts to properly interpret industrial hygiene data sets. Because of the uncertainty and variability in typical industrial hygiene data sets, there are common pitfalls in interpreting the data, even among experienced Certified Industrial Hygienists. This introductory presentation describes these pitfalls as well as the strengths and limitations of three common approaches to industrial hygiene data analysis: traditional statistics, Bayesian statistics, and rule-based data interpretation. Suggestions are offered to help decide which approach to use for a given data set.

Who Should Attend

Environmental, health, and safety (EHS) professionals, industrial hygienists, engineers, or others with responsibility to interpret employee exposure and air monitoring data.

Webinar: IH Statistics: Handling Data Below Limits of Quantitation

It is often difficult to make decisions with confidence based on industrial hygiene data below the analytical method’s limit of quantitation (LOQ) and collecting enough data to make decisions can be both an analytical and statistical challenge. Statistical methods as well as rule-based data interpretation approaches to dealing with data that come back below the LOQ are described.

Who Should Attend

Environmental, health, and safety (EHS) professionals, industrial hygienists, engineers, or others with responsibility to interpret employee exposure and air monitoring data.
