An introduction to industrial hygiene (final report).
Western Consortium for Continuing Education for the Health Professions, Inc., San Francisco, California 1977 Jan; :1-22
A 2 week training program on industrial hygiene that was based on the 1970 Occupational Health and Safety Act and held in Honolulu, Hawaii on January 3 to 14, 1977 is reviewed, along with a similar 1 week program held on June 20 to 24, 1977 in Agana, Guam. Topics covered in the Hawaii program included workplace exposures to dust, noise, and chemical agents, and environmental controls. Topics such as the principles of industrial hygiene and toxicology, aerosol measurements, and workplace hazards were covered during the second program. Participants evaluated both programs using weight rate scales and open ended questions. The author recommends that training programs of this type be continued.
