Dates and locations have been announced for the following AIHA® face-to-face training courses in winter 2013:
Exposure and Chemical Monitoring: Beyond IH Fundamentals
Building on IH fundamentals, this intermediate three-day course is designed to provide additional training and knowledge in the aspects of industrial hygiene chemical monitoring through group exercises and discussion. Attendees work in groups of four and build on knowledge gained in the “Fundamentals of Industrial Hygiene” course.
Each group is assigned to a department of a fictitious company. The groups review MSDSs, identify similar exposure groups (SEGs), conduct qualitative assessments, design quantitative sampling plans based on OSHA and NIOSH sampling methods (both direct-reading and integrated sampling), calibrate equipment, prepare laboratory analysis requests, interpret monitoring results (SAE, mixture rule, extended shift OEL), identify potential control measures, and then communicate the results to management and workers.
Fundamentals of Industrial Hygiene
Fundamentals of Industrial Hygiene, one of AIHA's most popular courses, is designed for OEHS professionals who are new to industrial hygiene or those who have newly acquired IH responsibilities. This four-day course teaches the basics of industrial hygiene through sampling and workshop sessions, hands-on lab experiences, demo sessions, and problem-solving exercises.
This course sells out quickly, so be sure to register early.
