Chemicals/Pharmaceuticals


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.
