This self-study course discusses the application of traditional industrial hygiene controls in the workplace and is based on 60 case studies. Most of the case studies involve the application of engineering and administrative controls and cover both industrial and IAQ-type problems. It also contains a calculations in spreadsheet format to aid in calculations found in the seven student lessons.
Students will read each case study, work through sample calculations and practical exercises in the workbook, complete a Learning Activity and a short Lesson Test.
