Linked to numerous health issues, per-and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of chemicals that are used to make fluoropolymer coatings and products that resist heat, water, stains, grease, etc.  PFAS are found in products such as clothing, adhesives, and cookware.  PFAS do not break down on their own in the environment.  They build up in soils, bodies of water, animals, and even humans.  In this class, we’ll explore PFAS in terms of both scientific findings as well as their implications for risk management and insurance.

  • Define PFAS, and list the major ones that exist.
  • Describe how prevalent PFAS are in humans, fish, and other wildlife.
  • Enumerate the major risk management and insurance concerns pertaining to PFAS.
