182.614.01 INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE LABORATORY
Uses laboratory and field methods and equipment to appraise occupational and environmental atmospheric conditions. Topics include grab and dynamic sampling; measurement of respirable and non-respirable particulates; particulates size analysis; fiber sampling and analysis; gas and vapor sampling and analysis by wet chemical and instrumental methods; and calibration of direct reading field survey instruments.
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to: - Calibrate air sampling pumps using primary and secondary standards. - Conduct air sampling for airborne particulate matter. - Define criteria and equipment used for size-selective particulate matter sampling. - Conduct air sampling for airborne gases and vapors. - Describe adsorptive and absorptive sampling techniques. - Select appropriate analytical techniques for air sample analysis. - Conduct air sampling using direct-reading instruments. - Perform a survey for airborne contaminants. - Write a professional report for air sample survey results.
