New Partnership Offers Industrial Hygiene Course to NASP Students
NASP has recently partnered with the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) to offer our newest course, the Basic Principles of Occupational Hygiene.
The Basic Principles of Occupational Hygiene provides a foundational understanding of key Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety concepts as the basis for anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace hazards. This course is perfect for early career health and safety professionals, occupational and environmental health and safety students, occupational health specialists, and other industry specialists who want a broader understanding of how recognizing and controlling workplace hazards is key to keeping workers safe.
This 10-hour (1.0 CEU) online self-study course will benefit those new to occupational and environmental health and safety, current health and safety professionals, and occupational health specialists (including physicians and nurses). Specialists in acoustics, ergonomics (human factors), work organization, biosafety, engineering, or analytical chemistry will gain a broader appreciation of how their role helps protect workers from workplace-related hazards and health issues.
Upon completion, students will have a basic understanding of:
- The value of occupational hygiene and the role of the occupational hygienist
- The fundamentals of anatomy and toxicology
- The range of hazards (physical and chemical) in the workplace, including sources and potential routes of exposure
- Hazard evaluation, exposure assessment, and sampling processes
- Basic methods of controlling exposure
- Potential career paths for OEHS professionals
