Overview & Audience
Please join us from noon to 1 pm CDT for a webinar on the health risks and environmental liabilities arising from the industrial use of PFAS.
For almost a century PFAS chemicals have been widely used in a variety of consumer and commercial applications: food packaging, cookware, stain resistant coatings, waterproof clothing, cleaning products, cosmetics, paints, ski waxing, wetting agents, and firefighting foams. Scientific research has connected PFAS chemicals with a variety of serious diseases, triggering claims under environmental policies (for the costs of clean-up) and general liability policies (for industrial disease).
There are currently more than 14,000 plaintiffs involved in active litigation in the United States. PFAS were recently portrayed in the movie Dark Waters. They pose a significant risk for businesses and their insurers.
This webinar will comprise a joint presentation with international engineering and environmental consulting firm, Antea Group, who have extensive first-hand experience supporting PFAS remediation projects and working with regulators on understanding the sources and behavior of PFAS and the precursors in the environment.
The presentation has been approved for 1 hour of Professional Practice credit in New York, 1 General credit in California and is reciprocal in New Jersey.
