Practical Industrial Hygiene Exposure Assessment and Statistics

This advanced 1-day course advances the knowledge of a practicing industrial hygienist on the application of exposure assessment and statistical concepts and techniques. The goal is to provide the student with the tools needed to manage the often intimidating task of evaluating and prioritizing chemical exposure assessments and interpreting industrial hygiene data in a statistical and defensible manner. Some industrial hygiene experience is an essential prerequisite, and some previous statistics coursework is helpful. However, the potentially complex concepts are described and practiced in a manner to equip the student with the knowledge and confidence to apply the skills that are learned. Traditional as well as innovative and practical approaches are discussed, with many opportunities for class participation and numerous hand-on exercises. A laptop with Microsoft Excel software is recommended.
