Designed for those responsible for employee safety, this course discusses how industries are regulated and how to apply industrial hygiene principles in the workplace. Gain a basic understanding of industrial hygiene that will allow you to communicate safety principles to employees, perform some environmental evaluation and evaluate independent industrial hygiene consultants. This is a required course for the Workplace Health and Safety Certificate Program, the Intensive Health and Safety Certificate Program and the Health and Safety Training Professional Concentration.
