Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month. The excerpt below was originally published in the April 2014 newsletter.
Each month I try to feature a website with broad appeal to our 4,000+ subscribers. Although this month’s website has a more narrow focus and covers an advanced topic, I think you will thoroughly enjoy it.
The blog is titled, “Human Health Risk Assessment to Chemicals” and it is written by Mike Jayjock. The blog is based on the principle that an occupational risk cannot be managed unless it is properly assessed.
Mr. Jayjock’s blog has a special focus on computer modeling to better assess risks. For example, if you measure chemical exposures on a random day and the results are very close to exceeding a permissible exposure limit (PEL), what are the odds that the exposure will exceed the PEL on some other day?
Here are some blog posts that might interest you:
