Description

This course will first introduce you to occupational hygiene and why it is important to recognize health hazards in the workplace. You will learn the history of occupational hygiene and how different parts of the body can be damaged due to inadequate occupational hygiene. Study contact dermatitis as well as the musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine, gastrointestinal and circulatory systems. The material also discusses the major functions of the respiratory system as well as of the liver, kidney, and eyes.

You will then look into toxicology and the three main entry routes where toxins enter the body. Then move onto hazardous substances and how to assess health risks in the workplace. You will learn that much of the work involved in assessing workplace hazards can be carried out by accessing Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), which is a standard way of communicating toxicology and other relevant information about dangerous substances. See why all assessments of risks to health should be reviewed at least every two years.
