This two-hour webinar, presented by experienced toxicology trainer Laura Robinson, offers a unique opportunity to ground yourself in toxicological terms and concepts – an increasingly valuable knowledge asset to have in working in the global regulatory compliance scene.
This webinar is applicable to all global chemical control regulations and covers the principles of toxicology together with toxicological endpoints and an explanation of common terminology (e.g. LD50, NOAEL, etc) and will also look at the most-often used testing strategies within toxicology. This webinar is particularly useful if you write safety data sheets or undertake classification and labelling work (CLP/GHS).
The material covered is suitable for those with little to no knowledge of toxicology, and attendees are actively encouraged to ‘raise their hand’ and put questions forward throughout the training – just as you would in a live classroom environment.
- Introduction to toxicology – What is toxicology and why is it important?
- Back to basics – Homeostasis, adaptation and cell injury, adverse effects, acute and chronic toxicity
- Risk, hazard and exposure – what these mean and how we use them in our everyday work
- Dose-response and dose-effect relationships – internal and external/exposure dose, thresholded and non-thresholded effects, NOAEL and LOAEL
- How chemicals cause harm (local effects) – irritation and corrosion (skin, eyes, respiratory tract)
- How chemicals cause harm (systemic effects)– target organ effects, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, reproductive toxicity, and developmental effects, skin and respiratory sensitisers.
- Basic toxicokinetics – absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion.
- Assessment of toxicological effects – use of animal and non-animal alternatives, In vitro, in vivo, ex vivo and in silico methods
- Introduction to human health risk assessment – how toxicology is used in risk assessment work
- Certificate of attendance available upon request
- Technical/scientific staff who work in a regulatory department
- Authors of safety data sheets (SDS) and/or extended safety data sheets (eSDS)
- Staff involved in classification and labelling under EU CLP/ GHS
- Occupational hygienists
- HSE staff
