October 13 at Noon ET

Attorneys Anne McGinness Kearse and Scott Hall of Motley Rice are helping workers  learn more about the potential dangers of chemical flavorings. They also represent workers who may  have developed diseases as a result of harmful exposure. They will discuss how  workers who work in facilities that process coffee, candy, microwave popcorn, and  other products can be exposed to flavoring chemicals linked to dangerous lung  diseases.  

Robert Harrison, MD, MPH, director of the University of California, San Francisco  Occupational Health Services and director of the worker tracking investigation  program for the California Department of Public Health will discuss the medical  issues involved in flavoring exposures and his involvement in the development of  California’s regulations for flavoring chemicals.

Mark Nicas, PhD, MPH, CIH, is an adjunct professor and director of the Industrial  Hygiene Program in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the  University of California Berkeley. He will discuss some of the specific job tasks and  conditions that expose workers to flavoring chemicals.  

Learn the risks and how workers can protect themselves on the job.
