Course Introduction ›

This 2-day Industrial Hygiene training course emphasizes on the recognition, evaluation and control of occupational health hazards. Topics include hazard recognition, health standards, air sampling, ventilation, noise exposure, temperature stress. Upon completion, participants should be able to identify and quantify common occupational health hazards.

Course Objectives ›

After completing of this Industrial Hygiene training program, the students should be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of toxicology.
  • Evaluate the potential of chemical agents to produce dermatitis.
  • Understand the potential hazards of industrial dusts, mists, and fumes.
  • Understand the principles of personal air sampling.
  • Evaluate compliance with OSHA and ACGIH standards.
  • Select appropriate ventilation systems for a particular hazard.
  • Select appropriate respiratory protection for a particular hazard.
  • Implement an OSHA-mandated hearing conservation program.
  • Assist in the performance of an indoor air quality investigation.
