Industrial hygiene practices aim to recognize, evaluate and control workplace health and safety hazards. The participants of this course will be introduced to the key concepts of industrial hygiene. We follow this up with extensive hands on modules demonstrating a wide variety of industrial hygiene monitoring equipment and their effective use in assessing hazards in a workplace.

By taking this course, participants will greatly improve their skill-sets, be capable of undertaking some IH testing with confidence, and gain an greater insight into managing the external hygienist.
