2019 Northwest Occupational Health Conference
October 23-25, 2019
The 2019 NOHC will be in Bend, Oregon at the "Riverhouse on the Deschutes Conference Center" from October 23-25, 2019.
This years’ Short Course will be held on Wednesday, October 23. Following the legalization of marijuana in several US states, safety and health practitioners have been playing catch-up as they work to identify the on-the job occupational hazards unique to the rapidly growing cannabis industry.
This short course is designed to provide context on the toxicology and human health impacts of cannabis, occupational exposure assessment, and workplace controls. The course will provide background on the chemistry of cannabis extraction and product manufacturing techniques, as well as human health impacts through health hazard evaluations. Practitioners will also learn updates in exposure assessment tools and techniques for different types of cannabis operations. Local production operators as well as regulators will share best practices for implementing workplace controls and employee training.
The General Sessions will be held on Thursday, October 24 and a half day Joint Session which will have an Ethics component on Friday, October 25.
