Webinar 3 in series on energy production and human health

October 19, 2021

The next webinar in the HEI Energy series, Energy Production and Human Health: Surveying Current Knowledge about Exposures from Unconventional Oil and Natural Gas Development (UOGD) is scheduled for October 28th. The webinar series will provide impartial information about human exposure and health effects associated with UOGD with two primary objectives:

  1. Inform policymakers, communities, and others making health-based decisions about UOGD.
  2. Raise the level of understanding of UOGD operations and help to ensure the utility and relevance of future human exposure and health research.

Webinar 3: October 28, 2021 at 11:30-12:45 PM ET

Human Exposure Research in a Cyclical Industry Part 2: Noise from Unconventional Oil and Natural Gas

The webinar will explore UOGD processes that might result in noise and how they are managed, state-of-the-practice principles for monitoring noise, and efforts to assess community exposures to noise from UOGD. All speakers will address the question of research needs to better understand and address noise exposures. The primary goal is to inform policymakers, communities, and others making health-based decisions about UOGD and academics who must factor this information into their study designs to ensure the utility of their human exposure research.
