The Science Behind the Health and Safety of Fiberglass and Mineral Wool


Date: Wednesday, March 25th
Time: 2:00 PM ET

There have long been questions as to whether or not respirable fiberglass and mineral wool fibers pose a health hazard to humans. Fortunately, decades of peer-reviewed scientific research have helped provide us with answers to many questions that still seem to linger.

Join JM as we dive into the details of the robust body of research behind the safety of fiberglass and mineral wool insulation in our live Insulation Intel® webinar, The Science Behind the Health & Safety of Fiberglass & Mineral Wool, on March 25th, at 2:00 PM ET

The webinar will conclude with an open Q&A session where all attendees may submit questions directly to our presenters, Bruce Ray and Kim Melton.

Key concepts from the webinar:

•    Results of research on fiberglass & mineral wool insulation hazards
•    Fiberglass & mineral wool hazard classifications
•    Fiberglass exposure levels (indoor and outdoor)
•    Product stewardship programs
•    The results from the latest research review released in 2020

This course is AIA accredited for 1 LU/HSW. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion that may be submitted for one professional development hour (PDH)*.
