182.637.01 NOISE AND OTHER PHYSICAL AGENTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT
Discusses noise-related topics, such as physics of noise propagation and control, noise measurement, hearing physiology, and noise-induced hearing loss, and covers non-ionizing radiation lasers, heat and cold stress, and vibration.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
Describe the components of an acceptable hearing conservation program
Define the mechanisms by which noise induces hearing loss
Calculate noise exposure metrics and compare them to acceptable exposure criteria
Operate a sound level meters noise dosimeters
Define hazard classification system for laser safety programs
Assess the acceptability of exposures to radiofrequency non-ionizing radiation
Describe basic radiation health concepts and methods for detecting ionizing radiation
Assess occupational heat stress risk
