During this symposium, participants will learn how to apply these practical tools and strategies through a series of real-life exposure scenario workshops. These workshops will utilize videos, basic characterization information, determinants of exposure, and sampling data for inhalation, dermal, and noise exposures. Participants will learn to make sound qualitative and quantitative exposure judgments, gain a better understanding of how they can apply new skills within their organization, and get direct feedback from seasoned experts. The capstone of the symposium will be a facilitated discussion summarizing lessons learned and identifying new opportunities for exposure assessment methodologies in the future.
