EOH 2004: Occupational Hygiene
The Department of Environmental & Occupational Health in collaboration with the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has introduced a comprehensive course in Occupational Hygiene (EOH 2004), scheduled to start in Fall 2021. The course will be taught in partnership with NIOSH experts and will introduce students to the core principles of occupational health, using COVID-19 as an example among others, and also discuss occupational health disparities. This course will focus on regulatory framework for controlling exposures, and current technologies for the detection, exposure assessment, and prevention of different hazards and health endpoints that arise in the workplace. EOH 2004 will walk students through chemometrics predictive modeling, worker empowerment and implementation of safe work practices.
This course comes with hands-on practice and is designed for both undergraduate and graduate students (no pre-req.). Among others, students will gain insights for effective prevention of occupation-related diseases, and ultimately promote the health and safety of workers.
