Eximious-Ephor Joint Symposium – External exposure assessment

September 13, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – September 15, 2021 @ 11:00 pm
Virtual and Daegu, Korea
Between USD60 and USD500
The 12th IOHA International Scientific Conference, organised by the Korean Industrial Hygiene Association (KIHA)IOHA 2021

Exposure assessment in the Exposome context- need for precise – broad-scope – external exposure assessment

This symposium, which is part of the 12th IOHA International Scientific Conference (IIOHA 2021), on the theme of “Bridging Gaps in OH Development, Opening New Horizons”, will present the EXIMIOUS/EPHOR experience of developing and applying exposome tools (dermal patches, sensors and imaging techniques) for exposure assessment in the exposome context. By sharing our experience with the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA) community, we aim to increase awareness of ongoing activities in exposome research in the occupational health community.

We also hope to stimulate discussions on how these methods/techniques can contribute to occupational health practice.

Presentations include:

  • The application of a low-cost sensor box for the assessment of working life exposures – experience from the EU EPHOR project
    Miranda Loh (IOM, United Kingdom)
  • Beyond particle detection: development of a sensor that analyses composition of particles
    Maaike Le Feber (TNO, Netherlands)
  • Exposure assessment using spectral imaging techniques – possibilities in EU EXIMIOUS project and beyond
    Murali Jayapala (imec, Belgium)
  • Dermal exposure vs inhalation exposure: what is the relative contribution to the internal dose?
    Jeroen Vanoirbeek (KU Leuven, Belgium)
