Description

PREREQUISITE:
This module and all other modules in the Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety Series require that you first complete PubH X600: Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety Pre-course Survey  There are 19 modules in the series. You will only need to complete the survey one time regardless of the number of modules you chose to complete.

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
