New to Industrial Hygiene: Monitoring Workshop

This one-day, hands-on course teaches essential field industrial hygiene monitoring methods. The basic science behind these methods and the "tricks of the trade" are demonstrated by experienced industrial hygienists and practiced by the students. Topics include real-time and integrated chemical and noise sampling techniques, assembling and calibrating sampling trains, and interacting with industrial hygiene laboratories.
