Description

Prior to accessing your first module in the Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety series, we need you to complete a short survey. This information will satisfy our funding requirements and tell us who is interested in learning about occupational and nanotechnology health and safety. Once you have completed and submitted the survey, you have access to all the modules without repeating the survey. There are 19 modules in the series. You may take these modules in sequence or at your own discretion. Thank you for your interest in the METPHAST Modules.

Occupational Hygiene Principles

(This module is one of 5 units comprising the first section of METPHAST: Introduction to Occupational Hygiene.  There are 15 modules on Nanotechnology Health and Safety, as well. See the section "Additional Information" for more details about these modules.)

In this module, you will be introduced to the occupational hygiene framework of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating and controlling workplace hazards. The terms exposure and dose will be defined.

Objectives

By the end of the module, you should be able to:
  • Classify the types of hazards workers face
  • Define "exposure" and related terms
  • List the routes by which workers can be exposed to hazardous agents
  • Describe the occupational hygiene framework of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace hazards
