Wrangling Risk with Regulation
The Product Stewardship Society will be holding its first webinar, The Role of Risk Assessment in the Regulatory Environment, on Friday, October 28, 2016 from 2:00 PM ET - 3:00 PM ET. Part of the Society’s commitment to expanding educational opportunities for its members, this webinar will be free for all attendees, who can earn one (1) contact hour towards their certification.
Both members and non-members are encouraged to make time in their schedules for what will be a fascinating and in-depth look at the relationship of risk in successful product stewardship programs. Because this webinar will not be recorded, this is the only time to participate in the discussion as future playback sessions won’t be available.
Drs. Kevin Kransler and R. Jeffery Lewis will focus on understanding, managing, and communicating product risk as a core function of an effective product stewardship program. Our speakers will discuss examples of the role human health risk assessment plays in the current regulatory landscape and how the Global Product Strategy can be a tool to implement a risk-based chemical management program. Additionally, both presenters will identify some of the emerging technical issues in human health risk assessment and what that means to our future regulatory environment.
Dr. Kransler is currently the Business Compliance Supervisor in the Product Stewardship & Regulatory Affairs department at ExxonMobil Chemical Company. He’s helped support the Global Product Strategy initiative through teaching at capacity building workshops in developing/emerging markets.
Dr. Lewis is currently a Distinguished Scientific Associate in the Epidemiology, Health Surveillance and Quality Assurance Section of ExxonMobil Biomedical Sciences, Inc (EMBSI). Primarily responsible for supporting ExxonMobil scientific programs related to naphthalene, 1,3-butadiene, human health risk assessment / regulatory affairs and regulatory impact analysis, he also serves on a number of industry trade association scientific committees, external science advisory boards, and is a member of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) Threshold Limit Value (TLV) Committee.
