In the mining industry employees may be exposed to airborne particulates at various levels of risk. In order to determine the exposure potential, the amount of the hazard must be measured.
This 8-hour class will review conducting industrial hygiene sampling for employee particulate exposure from beginning to end.
Participants will take away from this class how to:
- Use industrial hygiene equipment to measure employees’ exposure to particulates over a full shift
- Interpret and communicate results to management through written reports
- Use troubleshooting technics such as task sampling to identify the source(s) of exposure
IH equipment will be available in the class allowing participants to practice calibrating, assembling sample trains, etc.
