In a sign of progress, some 61 percent said that in 2012 they participated in an engineering control evaluation and/or annual exposure control plan review. Dr. Foley said "although 61% of the participants have been involved, we still have a lot of work to do to improve those numbers and grow awareness to 85% or greater – which is all evidence of the need to support the Unfinished Agenda Online Conference series."

An interactive edition of the online conference is available for replay on http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_RlH5YLb8p8. The event also featured unprecedented participation from a panel of experts:
