EIH III: Case Studies in the Application of Industrial Hygiene Control Methods

Course Description:
This self-study course discusses the application of traditional industrial hygiene controls in the workplace and is based on 60 case studies. Most of the case studies involve the application of engineering and administrative controls and cover both industrial and IAQ-type problems. It also contains calculations in spreadsheet format to aid in calculations found in the seven student lessons.

Students will read each case study, work through sample calculations and practical exercises in the workbook, complete a Learning Activity and a short Lesson Test.

Participants should have a basic knowledge of algebra and industrial hygiene. It would also be advantageous to have completed AIHA's EIH I: Elemental Industrial Hygiene eLearning Course.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Identify critical air, emission sources, indoor contaminants and employee behaviors that contribute to occupational health hazards.
  • Determine appropriate IH controls such as dilution and local exhaust ventilation, administrative controls, respiratory protection, substitution, isolation and so forth.
  • Apply engineering and other types of controls to common IH problems.
  • Use the Autocalc approach to solving math problems.
