Gain a basic understanding of chemistry for your role

This introductory webinar will provide you with a basic understanding of some of the most common physicochemical terms used in the prediction of likely exposure routes and hazardous effects; not only for human health but also for environmental fate and effects. What's more, expanding your knowledge of chemistry will help you with the identification of structural alerts, the use of appropriate read across and mechanisms of action.

In two hours, expert toxicologist Laura Robinson will teach you how to identify some important hazard properties, such as pH and its link with corrosivity, and important exposure routes, including the use of water solubility and Log Kow for predicting absorption, as well as environmental transport and fate. 

A unique feature of this training webinar is thanks to a strict limit of only thirty delegates, you are encouraged to 'raise your hand' and put questions forward throughout the training - just as you would in a classroom environment.
