This course is designed for safety, health, environmental, and management personnel who have industrial hygiene responsibilities, but limited training or experience in industrial hygiene. It consists of four modules:
• Module 1: Introduction - Introduction to Industrial Hygiene and Industrial Hygiene Concepts
• Module 2: Anticipation and Recognition – Particulate Matter, Gasses and Vapors, Noise
• Module 3: Evaluation - Exposure Assessment Concepts, Air Sampling for Particulate Matter, Air Sampling for Gases and Vapors
• Module 4: Control - Hierarchy of Controls, Principles of Ventilation, Personal Protective Equipment and Other Control Options
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
• Define basic terms and technical concepts integral to the practice of industrial hygiene.
• Explain how the practice of industrial hygiene fits within an environmental health and safety (EH&S) program
• Explain the differences between chemical (gases/vapors, dusts/mists/fumes), physical, and biological agents in the workplace.
• Identify occupational health hazards that may exist in the workplace including ergonomic, chemical, biological, radiological and physical hazards
• Calculate time-weighted averages.
• Convert between various units of exposure (for example, mg/m3 to ppm).
• Calculate and interpret noise exposures and doses.
• Identify the basic concepts of workplace exposure assessment.
• Describe the hierarchy of controls and how it applies to hazard control.
• Integrate various concepts into a broader occupational/ environmental health and explain the management of issues from the perspectives of anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control.
Lunch will be provided.
