Environmental Health & Safety Regulations: Toxicology and Industry Standards


Understand how toxicology impacts industry standards so you can improve your environmental health and safety policies.

Join toxicology expert Chúk Odenigbo, Regulatory Analyst at Nimonik, to understand how toxicology impacts industry standards and affects the creation of environmental health and safety regulations.

During this 60 minute webinar, you’ll learn:

  • An overview of toxicology and regulatory toxicology
  • Typical toxicology studies and their processes
  • How chemical interactions and human subjects are included
  • How toxicology standards are established
  • How to use toxicokinetic models
  • Review a case study and the resulting standards and policies established

Upon completion of this webinar, you’ll gain an understanding of:

  • How toxicological studies are carried out
  • How toxicological studies can impact EHS policies
  • What type of studies your organization should carry out and/or fund
  • How your organization can improve on environmental health and safety policies and improve overall safety
  • How to leverage an understanding of toxicological studies in your respective role, such as a manager understanding the importance of circulating their people to avoid overexposure and an inspector assessing the dangers or impacts of a project as a function of the logic behind the exposure limits/standards.

Why is this webinar topic important for environmental professionals?

Environmental professionals who work in environmental health and safety (EHS) need to understand how EHS regulations are created in order to comply. Toxicology impacts these industry standards.  This webinar provides an overview of the science and fundamentals of toxicology so that organizations can establish company health and safety procedures and policies.

Chúk Odenigbo

Regulatory Analyst, Nimonik

Chúk Odenigbo is a budding toxicologist and professional in the health and safety sector. Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Chúk currently lives in Montréal, Québec, working with Nimonik, an app company focused on making it easier for companies to meet their environmental, health and safety legal obligations. He completed his undergraduate degrees in chemistry and environmental science at Queen’s University, followed by a masters in environmental health and safety with a concentration in toxicology. He has worked as an environmental scientist in the oil and gas industry in Alberta for a couple of years, after which he got involved with the Canadian Parks Council as a youth consultant. There, he co-authored the Nature Playbook, a publication geared towards reconnecting Canadians with nature and the outdoors, highlighting the health benefits that the outdoors brings.

Chúk fell in love with toxicology at a surprisingly young age; finding it such a powerful tool in a world where knowledge is paramount and curiosity leaves no casualties. Toxicology is an interdisciplinary science that pulls from chemistry, biology, anatomy, environmental science, medicine, mathematics, statistic… and influences public health, public policy, health legislation. Results from toxicological experiments impact human lives in very direct ways, and while standards save lives, understanding the story behind each number generated can save even more.
