The industrial environment - its evaluation and control. Syllabus.
Powell CH; Hosey AD, eds. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Environmental Health Service, Bureau of Occupational Safety and Health, PHS Publication No. 614, 1970 Jan; :1-415
This Syllabus presents in summary form the material covered in a two-week training course for industrial hygiene engineers and chemists, offered by the Division of Occupational Health of the Public Health Service. It includes lecture outlines, problems, and reference materials. Laboratory exercises will be published separately. First published in 1958, and reprinted in 1961 with minor corrections, the Syllabus has been extensively revised for this second edition. Originally designed to supplement instruction offered in the training course, the Syllabus has also been made available to industrial hygienists not attending the course and has been widely used as a guide and reference in the work situation. The course upon which the Syllabus is based does not attempt to cover the entire field of industrial hygiene. It is designed to instruct engineers and chemists new to the field in the basic procedures and techniques of industrial hygiene, and to give more experienced professionals an opportunity to review these fundamentals and to exchange experiences and information. Industrial hygiene has been defined as "the science and art of recognizing, evaluating, and controlling occupational health hazards." This volume is devoted primarily, therefore, to the fundamental principles and methods employed in this recognition, evaluation, and control. In addition, however, it includes brief discussions of clinical, toxicological, physiological, and dermatological aspects of occupational health. Many excellent reference sources, including those in the "Selected List of General Reference Sources," are provided on these and other facets of occupational health.
