Competency Framework: Understanding How ARECC Works Within Occupational Exposure Assessment

This framework provides an organized summary of the collective knowledge and skills necessary for conducting occupational exposure assessments. The knowledge and skills presented are one approach to assessing exposures and hazards through identifying, characterization, estimating, and evaluating workplace hazards. This body of knowledge establishes the core knowledge elements of the industrial hygiene process in harmony with the convention process of Anticipate, Recognize, Evaluate, Control, and Confirm (ARECC).

Here's a sneak peek of what's inside:

  • A framework of the ARECC decision-making knowledge areas
  • Application of the fundamentals of industrial hygiene through technical and management knowledge levels
