Industrial Hygiene Risk Assessment (Virtual PDC Week - Fall 2021) - CLOSED

This item is expired.

Course Description:

Presented as part of Virtual Fall 2021 PDC Week

This course includes fundamental EHS risk assessment concepts and internationally accepted risk assessment terminology. The authors will discuss exposure assessment priorities and health risk ratings. A Modified Health Risk Rating (HRR) and IH Failure Mode and Effect Analysis methodology were developed for this course. Nanomaterials risk assessment tool will be discussed briefly since one of the case studies includes nanomaterials. Most of the risk assessment tools are linear. Therefore, a new IH risk assessment tool was developed to address the additive or synergistic effects of multiple chemicals exposures. A dermal exposure risk assessment tool is also included in the course materials.

Finally, a real case study is used to demonstrate the alignment of occupational health risks and the Prevention through Design (PtD) risk assessment process. The course ends with an assignment where the participants will select one of the Risk Assessment techniques and demonstrate a successful risk reduction methodology.


None. However, the participants are encouraged to complete the basic IH risk assessment course prior to enrollment in this course.

Value Added

Participants will receive free IH risk assessment tools on the day of the class.

  • Discuss fundamental EHS risk assessment concepts
  • Introduce Industrial Hygiene Risk Assessment techniques
  • Utilize Health Risk Assessments and Prioritization
  • Align Occupational health risk alignment with PtD Risk Assessment process
