Fundamentals of Industrial Hygiene

The comprehensive industrial hygiene training course is a three-day introduction to fundamental industrial hygiene principles. It is designed for industrial hygienists/technicians, safety professionals or others who may have industrial hygiene responsibilities.

Hands-on training is combined with classroom lectures to ensure that students understand how basic air contaminants, noise, ventilation, heat and illumination surveys are planned and measurements conducted. Students will then be able to conduct measurements, or better understand how to specify requirements for obtaining contractual industrial hygiene services.

Topics include:

  • History of Industrial Hygiene
  • Occupational Exposure Limits
  • Personal and Area Air Sampling
  • Statistical Considerations
  • Analytical Methods
  • Use of Direct-Read Instruments for Air Sampling
