This four-part series of live instructor-led, web-based modules is intended for environmental, health and safety, quality, and business development professionals in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. Upon completion of the 4 modules, each participant will be able to:

  • Describe the basic definition of a "potent compound."
  • Describe at least 5 examples where occupational exposure to active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) has caused unintended adverse health effects to employees.
  • Describe the basic elements of a potent compound safety program.
  • Understand the regulatory basis for potent compound safety and prevention of cross-contamination.
  • Be able to perform basic risk assessments for APIs.
  • Understand basic industrial hygiene monitoring strategies as they relate to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry; and
  • Describe various engineering, administrative, and PPE controls used within the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.
CM points

The Advanced Potent Compound Safety series qualifies for Certification Maintenance points for Certified Industrial Hygienists. Completion of all 4 modules will award 1.67 CM points.

This series is FREE.

Module 1: Intro to Potent Compound Safety

Level:
Intermediate

Intro to Potent Compound Safety is designed to provide the participants with a basic understanding of the key definitions, and terminology used in the remaining modules. In addition, this module provides an overview of the EHS program elements for an effective potent compound safety program and numerous case studies where occupational exposures to active pharmaceutical ingredients have occurred. Participants will be involved in their learning experience through interactive, instructional exercises. Combined with technical information, these activities provide opportunities to apply newly learned concepts to a variety of industry relevant scenarios.

Module 2: Health Based Exposure Limits and the Role of Toxicology

Level:
Intermediate

In the Health Based Exposure Limits and the Role of Toxicology module, the participants will be introduced to key concepts in health based exposure limits including toxicology, desirable data requirements, occupational exposure limits, acceptable daily exposures, permitted daily exposure limits, and more.

Module 3: Industrial Hygiene

Level:
Intermediate

In Industrial Hygiene, the participants will learn various industrial hygiene concepts as they relate to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. The concepts include: advantages/disadvantages of using total dust vs. compound specific methods, method development for active pharmaceutical ingredients, collection of personal and area samples, task-based sampling vs. 8-hour TWA sampling, wipe sampling for surface contaminants, and statistical analysis of monitoring data.

Module 4: Banding and Control Strategies

Level:
Advanced

Banding and Control Strategies is the fourth and final module in a 4-module series. In this module, the participants will learn basic control banding concepts, and the use of engineering, administrative, and personal protective equipment to control occupational exposure to active pharmaceutical ingredients. Presentation and discussion points on local exhaust ventilation, general room ventilation, powders weighing hoods, segregation areas, medical surveillance, operating procedures, the use of respiratory protection and much more will be provided.
