Webinar: IH Statistics: Rule Based Data Interpretation

In view of the known variability of industrial hygiene data sets, a small dataset is unlikely to generate data which reflects the full range of potential exposures. Rule-based data interpretation approaches including the EN 689 standard can be applied for small or highly truncated data sets where most of the values are below the limit of quantitation. Rule-based statistics are easy to use, are “black and white”, and often allow better decision making than calculating traditional statistics or Bayesian statistics for these small or highly truncated data sets. However, as discussed in this presentation, the choice of which rule-based data interpretation approach to apply can depend on many factors, including not only the number of data points collected but also a risk assessment for your specific operation(s).

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: Practical Use of Lognormal Stats

This course advances the knowledge of a practicing industrial hygienist on the application of lognormal statistical concepts and techniques. The goal is to provide the student with the tools needed to manage the often-intimidating task of interpreting industrial hygiene data in a statistical and defensible manner. The potentially complex concepts are described and practiced in a manner to equip the student with the knowledge and confidence to apply the skills that are learned. Although given remotely, the course will include hand-on exercises/demonstrations using Microsoft Excel.

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.
