The use of Bayesian tools are becoming common and offer exciting opportunities for improving the accuracy, efficiency, and transparency of our exposure judgments made by occupational hygienists on a daily basis. Freely available Bayesian tools can be used to formally combine our professional judgment regarding a particular exposure and its uncertainty along with the statistical analysis of current exposure data. The language and framework of the approach holds promise for expressing the output of exposure assessments in a manner that is much more easily understood and communicated than the output from more traditional statistical analysis. Best of all, the Bayesian decision analysis approach formalizes traditional exposure assessment processes already used by occupational hygienists today. These tools can be incorporated into any exposure control banding process and provides a framework for validating control category selections.

This PDC will provide an overview of the Bayesian framework for decision analysis and explore, through discussion and workshops, opportunities for its application in data interpretation, exposure risk assessment and controls.
