Risk Assessment and Industrial Hygiene Solutions for Semiconductor Industry

Monday, May 23 | 2:00 PM – 4:30 PM


Management, Risk Assessment and Management

Arranger: A. Korchevskiy, Chemistry & Industrial Hygiene, Inc., Wheat Ridge, CO. Moderator: C. Torres, Gates Corporation, Denver, CO. Monitors: R. Strode and D. Hall, Chemistry & Industrial Hygiene, Inc., Wheat Ridge, CO.

The roots of success in OHS programs for the semiconductor industry relate to comprehensive hazard identification and risk assessment, deep knowledge of the manufacturing processes, flexibility in the applied solutions, and effective management. Speakers will discuss advantages of standard specifications for management systems (like OHSAS 18001:2007), as well as importance of an effective risk communication and monitoring of employees’ hazard perception. The most up-to-date methodologies of engineering nanoparticles exposure and risk assessment will be reviewed, focusing on the semiconductor facilities.
