This week we welcome two ACGIH leaders to discuss their new website for COVID resources and going back to work/school during a pandemic. We will look at the resources and discuss tips and tools with the Chair of ACGIH’s Pandemic Response Task Force Lisa Brosseau, ScD, CIH and the Board Liaison to the task force Tom Peters, PhD, CIH.
Dr. Peters is a Professor at University of Iowa Department of Occupational and Environmental Health and a member of the ACGIH Board of Directors. He is an engineer trained in aerosol physics who applies his efforts to the study of human health as it relates to particulate exposures. Dr. Peters develops novel strategies to quantify the morphology, concentration, and size of airborne particles. He uses these strategies to understand and control contaminants in diverse occupational and environmental settings.
Dr. Brosseau, now retired, was a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) School of Public Health from 2015 to 2018, where she was director of the Illinois Education and Research Center, which supported graduate and continuing education for occupational health and safety professionals and community outreach activities. She was also director of the UIC Center for Healthy Work. Dr. Brosseau has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters, delivered numerous platform research presentations, and has been an invited speaker at numerous local, national and international conferences and workshops. She has written several articles for CIDRAP focused on respiratory protection for healthcare and other workers during outbreaks and pandemics.
