Algebra; familiarity with the IH or OH&S professions
This self-study course is a comprehensive course intended for IHs and other OEHS professionals. The course follows the book Useful Equations which covers topics such as: calculation and estimation approaches related to airborne contaminants, TLV and TWA, OA for dilution, fans, system testing, sound and noise, radiation, ventilation, statistics, ventilation, IAQ and more. The course workbook will illustrate how to apply 150 equations to the real world of industrial hygiene and OH&S. Each section presents practical applications, short case studies, and sample calculations, both manually and using the IVE AutoCalc Spreadsheet programs.
Section 1- Introduction, General Math Review, General Sciences, Cost Estimating
Section 2 - General Industrial Hygiene, Statistics
Section 3 - Local Exhaust Ventilation, Dilution Ventilation
