Abstract
This course is intended to familiarize the trainee with the chemical and physical agents and related hazards which the worker encounters in the occupational environment. Diseases, especially of the skin and respiratory tract, are discusssed in relation to excessive exposures. Although the lectures focus on the recognition of hazards, some aspects of the measurement and control of these exposures are introduced through discussion f the substitution of processes, equipment, and the use of adequate ventilation and appropriate protective devices. The training course manual has been specially prepared for the trainees attending the course and should not be includced in reading lists of periodicals as generally available.
