New to Industrial Hygiene: Fundamentals

This one-day "crash" course introduces those new to the field of industrial hygiene, or those looking to learn about the field of industrial hygiene, to the fundamental concepts of anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of occupational exposure to chemicals and noise. Topics are presented in a practical and interactive manner and explore how exposure occurs, application of Occupational Exposure Limits, the health effects of chemicals and noise, approaches to evaluating and measuring chemical and noise exposures, and the essentials of exposure control.
