Industrial Hygiene Exposure Modeling

Predicting what worker exposures will be to chemicals and particles can be invaluable for many reasons, such as to estimate (1) exposures that happened in the past; (2) anticipated exposures during design and planning phases; (3) exposure where no quantitative method exists or are difficult to measure; or (4) peak exposures, to name just a few. Although it is difficult to model these exposures precisely, modeling tools are a proven technique to improve the ability of the industrial hygienist to identify exposure scenarios that may exceed health-based exposure limits. This course will teach the fundamental concepts of modeling worker exposure and demonstrate the use of the American Industrial Hygiene Association’s IHMOD freeware. Opportunities for class participation and hand-on exercises will be provided. A laptop with Microsoft Excel software is recommended.

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.

New to Industrial Hygiene: Monitoring Workshop

This one-day, hands-on course teaches essential field industrial hygiene monitoring methods. The basic science behind these methods and the "tricks of the trade" are demonstrated by experienced industrial hygienists and practiced by the students. Topics include real-time and integrated chemical and noise sampling techniques, assembling and calibrating sampling trains, and interacting with industrial hygiene laboratories.

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.
