This instructor's manual presents the eighth module in a series of eight which form a course designed for students at an advanced level of training in the field of industrial health. This module discussed several additional topics not included in the first seven modules. The discussion on controlling industrial wastes included the quality of water and centered on a discussion of the uses of water in industry and the procedures needed to treat water to obtain a desired quality. Control of solid waste considered the various sources of solid wastes and methods of disposal, along with the objective of a solid waste control program. Under the control of hazardous materials the manual focused on purchasing, handling, and storing hazardous materials and using personal protective equipment such as respirators. The economics behind industrial hygiene were considered, including the costs of controlling exposures versus the costs of not controlling exposures and the need to consider and compare alternative control methods. Two methods are presented for making a decision between alternatives for economic considerations. Lastly the legal aspects of industrial hygiene are considered with a discussion of the OSHA Act.
